Kris Zyp gave some great presentations at The Ajax Experience including a discussion on advanced JSON. He did most of his demonstrations of JSON interaction using a Firefox extension that he developed himself called RESTTest.
There were some requests after the presentation that he make the extension available to the public to aid in Ajax development. He has done just that.
RESTTest allows you to construct custom HTTP requests to directly test requests against a server. RESTTest uses the XmlHttpRequest object and allows you to simulate XHR to quickly prototype requests and test security problems. It is designed specifically for working with REST sources, supporting all HTTP methods, and allows you to issue HTTP requests with your headers and data and examine the results to test REST sources.
