Linux HTTP Trace / Protocol Analysis

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
In Windows there are a number of tools that allow you to trace HTTP and HTTPS requests and responses  - viewing headers, POST data, etc.  One of my favorite tools for this is called HTTPAnalyzer.  

When using Linux it seems that my options are limited to either using Wireshark to capture port 80 traffic (which is limited because it is unable to decode HTTPS content) or using Firebug or LiveHTTPHeaders  inside of Firefox

Are there any applications for Linux that allow you to trace HTTP / HTTPS traffic?
