When I move google maps around, why aren't XMLHttpRequests being logged?

I checked the box to log the requests and am not seeing them. Is google maps using a different technology now? If they are, is there another site you would recommend for viewing these logs in the console? Thanks!

2 options: one might be that your browser has already cached that request so doesn't need to make it again (if you've already moved your map around before you checked the logs). The other might be that they just don't register in the console anymore: in Chrome's Developer Tools, click on the "Network" tab. When I look there, a bunch of JS calls are logged when I move a map around. You can click on any of the logs to get more info about it.

Thanks Eric. I went to a new map area and wasn't able to view them in the console, but I was able to see a bunch of the request and response data in the network tab after clicking on the 'XHR and Fetch' filter.
