    I mean, how can this be done without opening up a browser or a broswer control?

    Additionally, there is some sort of plugin to a browser in IE and others where you can watch the communication from a browser to a server and back. Does anyone know about this?

    Nope. I have no idea. Your best bet would be to go to a forum that does nothing but talk about programming. All we know is the basic stuff.

    The first part would probably largely depend on the site. The second part sounds like you want to use Wireshark or something. The Wikipedia page can point you to other similar software as well. :)
