Google just announced an update to the URL Inspection Tool within Google Search Console. It adds the ability to see the page's HTTP response, page resources, JavaScript logs and a rendered screenshot of the page. This is a really useful update and gives webmasters and SEOs more insight into the page itself and how Google sees it.

Google posted about this on Twitter and shared this GIF showing it off:

Here are screen shots from this site, showing off some of the features as well.

You access this by clicking on the "crawled page" link:
