It would be great to have an option to open automatically Developer tools in Chrome with each new tab or new popup window to read network requests triggered by new tab or popup.
This feature is not available in Chrome browsers, but there is partial workaround:

Now you will see network traffic coming through all opened tabs or popup windows similar to Developer Tools console. Formatting is not so nice, there is much more details about each requests, but it will do the job.
