A web developer’s life becomes much saner if he/she has easy access to all page header information. Firefox offers you PLUGIN-NAME that helps you inspect headers.

Here is something for the terminally inclined ones among you - wget. To view the http headers give the following command in gnome terminal :

wget -S --spider www.example.com

where,
example.com is your domain,
--spider tells wget to act like spider and to just check the pages without actually downloading them,
-S gives the Server response.

Typical output of the wget command, when used as mentioned above, is as follows:

HTTP request sent, awaiting response...
