You may be very clear about which websites your web browser is visiting, but how about the URLs your commonly used programs are accessing? Without a tool, we would lose our bearings about this. Luckily, there is HTTPNetworkSniffer such kind of network packets sniffer, so we can get these hidden information with ease.

HTTPNetworkSniffer is a powerful and easy-to-use network packets sniffer which can completely capture all HTTP requests/responses (i.e.: Uplink/Downlink data packages) sent between Web browser and Web server, then display these information in a clear list, or you can export them as TXT/HTML/XML/CSV file for later use & analysis.

Then, what’s the use of obtained information for us? Of course, different people have different use. We have no idea about the use for geeks, but for most common/advanced computer users, utilizing these information along with hosts file can help us block software’s built-in ads, and prevent unnecessary or unwanted software updates, even check whether software has a rogue behavior.
