I was looking at how Assembly Language works, because I want to learn how the complex and fancy things my computer does actually happen at the CPU register/hardware levels. Is there any way to see what's going on during normal computer use?
I want to learn like, what kind of things go in and out of the various registers while I'm say, browsing the internet or playing a game, etc. Though even if I could watch this I am not sure how I could correlate it to specific computations that I can see happening at a higher level. That is, I don't know how I would know if this hex code going into this register at this time is related to Firefox processing SSL encryption, etc.
