This is caused by http://src.chromium.org/viewvc/chrome?revision=226031&view=revision

"Switch to fetching NPAPI requests through the browser process instead of going through the renderer."

So network requests issued by browser itself are not reported to Blink, so they do not exist from the point of view of WebApp.

Will it be fixed? No matter how it is implemented, we can not see the requests, that is an issue, right?

 Issue 335502  has been merged into this issue.
ok, this seems to be more of a minor bug: don't go to a website and open up the devtools afterwards. Instead open up devtools and then load the page (or reload it after you opened them) and things work fine for XHR. I know this is just a workaround and not a solution, but...

I do have a similar problem with RTMP (Flash Streaming Events) which does not show up in the network tab at all

this bug not appear if I set "Disable cache (while DevTools is open)" in settings of devTools - General
@ #10: cannot confirm this on my side. That's always on in my settings.

The problem, specifically not being able to see ANY Flash-originated network activity in 32.0.1700.102, appears when using the Adobe flash plugin, but it does not occur when using Pepperflash. This bug makes it impossible to run the debug version of Flash player and see its network traffic. This issue causes a significant degradation in the usefulness of the developer tools.

Summary: DevTools: Network Panel doesn't show requests from flash applications (was: Developer tools (Network section) don't show response of requests from flash applications)
just noticed that the same problem occurs in Silverlight applications
@ #10: Neither checking nor unchecking "Disable cache (while DevTools is open)" did  fix the missing HTTP requests in [Network] for Silverlight applications.

Quick fix: run chrome with --disable-direct-npapi-requests command line flag.

This flag was introduced in aforementioned change.
Tested fix on M33 (stable), M34 (beta), M35 (canary).

There are two plugin subsystems in Chrome: NPAPI and PPAPI. NPAPI (legacy) is going away shortly (see http://blog.chromium.org/2013/09/saying-goodbye-to-our-old-friend-npapi.html).

DevTools support for NPAPI was already disabled (but can be re-enabled using --disable-direct-npapi-requests command line flag).

New Chrome releases are bundled with PPAPI Flash plugin, so this won't be a concern for Flash users.
Bug still exist for latest version of Silverlight plugin (5.1.30214.0) on latest version of Chrome (35.0.1916.153 m). Please reopen bug.
