At some point in the past I had a plugin for firefox that rewrites the HTML headers being sent by your browser, specifically the "Host:" line in the HTML GET request.

I can't find this plugin online. Does anyone know a plugin/way to do this? I am looking for one for Chrome but any would work.

The specific reason for this is I am trying to work on a wordpress website which I just did a DNS change on. Until that DNS change goes into effect I can use the IP but since its a shared host the Host line isn't set right.

You can use your hosts file instead - as an added bonus, this method also works for other HTTP methods and other protocols.
