--- Comment #3 from Joseph Pecoraro <joepeck at webkit.org> ---
This is a common thing in other tools:

  • Chrome
    - Right click in the Console to see Context Menu

  • Firefox
    - Console > Filter output > XHR

  • Firebug
    - "Firebug shows you each XMLHttpRequest, in ... and the Console tab"
    - http://getfirebug.com/network

I agree that this isn't the best way to debug network traffic but its something that developers are used to and may speed up debugging of some situations (turn on, perform action, turn off, debug the XHRs in that short time period). If it can easily be turned on / off it would be good for those developers that would rather have this then use the Network tab.

I think Nikita had a prototype in the past using just a Safari extension.

That said, if we did this I think we'd want to improve our Console filtering in general otherwise it would get out of Control. Firefox has done a really great job here, and I like what they've done with their filtering.
