Web Intents Debugger

Introduction

This is a tool for developers who are interested in inspecting web intents.

When installed, this application registers itself for all common verbs. And if chosen to receive an intent, it logs the intent and exposes its fields.

The aim is to make it easier to discover how other applications are populating their intents. As it stands, this application is somewhat limited because (a) there is no action wild-carding and (b) the chrome webstore does not support type wildcards either. As a consequence this application can only capture 'standard' verbs used with common mime types; it may be possible to improve this in the future.
