Easy Software tool for data packet sniffer

I am looking for an easy to use to monitor the data send from browsing websites, over the port 80. Basically I want to see if my login details are send by plain text or encrypted.

I use wireshark www.wireshark.org
This used to be called ethereal, but they had to change the name.

You can use either Ethereal - www.ethereal.com/ or Fiddler (simpler to use) www.fiddler2.com/
Easy to use. Just start the software and run your program. It will show you all the HTTP traffic

ok, so I tried wireshark, yes I agree easy to use. However how do I get it to capture and monitor just one website which I am browsing on my laptop???
