Hello Experts.

I want to know about a very simple program that I can open in my laptop and when I visit a web page in my web browser, that program shows me the information that is sent and received in the process of visiting the web page. Once, I had a program like that but I don´t remember its name and I can´t find it in my computer. That program I had was writen in Delphi and had a small size (exe).

if you use firefox you could have a look at firebug it's pretty good, though not a tcp packet sniffer.

also you could use wireshark if you are after a true tcp packet sniffer.
