I'm writing a fairly basic Chrome extension, where I parse the content of a web page.

I'm a bit new to this, Javascripts, content scripts and extensions, but I need to download the content of a particular web page and parse it. I'm stuck at getting the actual content of the web page from within a script query.

I'm sure this is a pretty common thing web developers run into, I'm just really not familiar with web dev.

var req = new XMLHttpRequest();
req.open("GET", "http://www.google.com", true);
req.onload = parseXML;
req.onerror = showError;
req.onabort = showAbort;

Well, I get the response but it's in responseText, not responseXML.
