Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Are there programs for Windows that would enable me to listout all the http requests my computer sent to all web servers and monitor in real time?

Example, I visit website.com and that website would be listed in the listout?

Also, it would be great if this would be browser independent.

It would be cool if I could view responses too if that's not too much memory to hold.

I use Fiddler for this task. Saved my life several times. –  Gene May 15 '13 at 11:36

Nice tool, indeed. Requires proxy configuration on the application side though. –  barbaz May 15 '13 at 12:13
    
On windows 7 and 8 this can be done using the performance monitoring too that is accessible by the task manager. –  Mokubai May 15 '13 at 16:28

A network analysis tool such as Wireshark can be used for that. You can use it to monitor every network package that runs through your interface, you can define filters so that you only see HTTP packages.

Wireshark displaying HTTP traffic

Above you see a Screenshot of Wireshark recording HTTP GET requests originating from me browsing cnn.com from my web browser.

You can also filter both the requests and the responses.
