SSL Sniffer is a small-sized and portable piece of software that automatically detects HTTP and HTTPS addresses in Internet Explorer and WinINET-based communications. It offers support for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, among other web browsers.
The advantages of portability
Since there is no installation involved, you can drop the program files anywhere on the hard disk and just click the executable to run.
There is also the possibility to save SSL Sniffer to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any PC with minimum effort and no prior installers.
What's more, the tool does not create new entries in the Windows registry or Start menu, leaving the disk clean after removal.
Simple and intuitive UI
The interface is made from a regular window with a straightforward structure, where a list is automatically populated at startup with processes that can be sniffed. Details show their process ID and window title.
Easily choose processes to sniff
So, all you have to do is select a process to sniff, along with a connection to view its stream after analyzing the index, encryption, time, HTTP-R, request, response, size, type, HTTP-A and URL. Apart from the fact that you can refresh the list of processes, there are no other notable options available here.
The app has minimal impact on computer performance, running on low CPU and RAM. It is very responsive to commands and works smoothly, without causing the OS to hang, crash or pop up error messages. We have not come across any issues in our tests. However, SSL Sniffer has not been updated for a very long time.
