Cool Thanks Nyall!!

Yeah, I was just playing around a little with the possibilities. Logging
clickable links in the Message panels was just easiest to do (after
printing to python console :-) ).

I also tried to add (potentially) more info to the log, eg by showing
headers or the sent data if it is a POST, but my feeling is that a lot
of that isn't passed to either the QtReply or Response classes that we
receive via the signals?

I'm very much open to have a special 'debug' mode with firefox-style ;-)
panel (which potentially makes QGIS slower). And I really like Martin's
First Aid plugin too.

But have to dive into this a lot more then: mix the Python Console with
some advance html for the network logs? Or create our own qt based debug
Maybe create a QEP for it, so we can discuss this further in public? I
can do that (or Nathan if he thinks he already thought about this a lot).

I was hoping that the 3 linse of change in
https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/pull/8907 could be seen as a bug to land in
3.6 :-)
But this plugin is then a first step and can be obsolete when we have
more... for OWS-service users I think this simple setup already is a
cool start.

Thanks all for input and help!
