If you have ever spent time optimizing the performance and user experience of your Web pages, then this utility may be the best $200 you’ll spend. HttpWatch installs right into IE and displays a pane which exposes everything that a browser is doing when a URL is requested. You’ll see the load time and sequence of all files and images, cookies and headers sent and received, whether or not caching was used, any HTTP status codes, and more. You can download a trial version (restricted to which sites it will display data for) from http://www.httpwatch.com/.

  1. the log window from "the proxomitron" does similar stuff as well, basically a rolling list of the http headers coming in…
    it’s cool freeware which you can use to filter out all sorts of content… and because its a http proxy it works in all browsers
    the ad stripping alone makes dialup seem fast!
