Is it possible to use Wireshark to see what URL and what params are being requested by my computer?

Something like:

www.foobar.com/someendpoint/bazboo

Does Wireshark offer this information in it's package capture information?

I downloaded Fiddler2, but it did not show any new request being made while I interacted with this application in question. I'm sure it's doing online requests and not loading data from local cache.

Would wireshark show me this URL being invoked?

Absolutely. Wireshark will show ALL network traffic over a network including URLs, unencrypted passwords, etc.

Unless the connection is secured, in which case Wireshark can only show the raw TCP packets. –  Amazed Apr 19 '12 at 1:05
    
It's not a duplicate of that question, the other question was vague. This question specifically asks about Wireshark. –  ekaj Apr 19 '12 at 1:30
