Tuesday Quickie - Suppressing SignalR in the Developer Console

This quickie came from a conversation Bart Read and I had on Twitter about how hard all the traffic SignalR generates makes using the Network tab in the Chrome Developer Tools.

In the end, I had a brainwave and found a simple solution - with a little digging and experimentation.

All you need to do is click on the filter icon on the Network tab's toolbar and enter the following magic incantation

-transport -negotiate

This pretty much kills all the SignalR traffic and lets you get back to debugging your own code.
