I just use the normal Emacs debugging facilities (mainly edebug).

I have a feeling that you think eww is way more complicated than it is.
:-) eww fetches a single HTML page, renders it, and then fetches any
images the HTML may have included.

The HTML can be viewed with the `v' command, and the URL it fetched you
already know.

I haven't seen the need for logging anything.
