Easily discover the exact URLs of your IE-downloaded pages and images with this program, but you'd better be quick. ActMask HTTP Sniffer CE's basic spreadsheet interface lists the important information: URL, host, and file type. You can search the list, but you can't sort columns to more easily find a specific entry.

It's easy to install and use ActMask HTTP Sniffer CE. You just hit the program's record button and surf normally with IE. The recorded information stacks as you surf. Watch quickly, though, as the utility resets at random times and you can't alter this setting. During testing we'd collect more than 200 URLs and watch them disappear as we'd surf to a new site. That wasn't consistent, though, as usually the new site didn't eliminate the previous site's URLs. A simple find function doesn't allow for wildcard characters.

ActMask HTTP Sniffer CE is novice-friendly, but users with any experience are going to want a more consistent and robust application.
