In this post we will deal with the most vital facts and the pros and cons concerning the HTTPS vs HTTP issue. Besides the security advantage, we will consider the main things that make a difference: caching, performance issue, virtual hosting issue and others.
What are the tools which help us to see and catch the application and system tools web traffic? HTTPAnalyzer is the HTTP sniffing tool which allows us to track all the web traffic of a particular computer. It is available as a Windows standalone application (as well as an Internet Explorer or FireFox add-on). Here we share on the standalone edition which in use for sniffing application traffic. As such an application, it tracks system-wide, single- or multi-process HTTP traffic. The full list of the HTTP analysis tools is here.
HttpWatch is a developer’s tool that captures a wide range of HTTP related data. It helps users to watch precisely which HTTP traffic is triggered when one accesses a web page. The program integrates as an Internet Explorer and a Firefox plugin. This plugin works perfectly to show custom website loads and performance. The full list of the network analysis tools is available here.
