I would like to track whether any scripts loaded with a page are sending and receving data to the web server from my script that is loaded.

I can't figure a way to do it, does anyone have any ideas?

If you're using IE, then you can run Fiddler (www.fiddlertool.com) which allows you to monitor http traffic.

If you're using Firefox, you can use this GreaseMonkey script :

Hope this helps,

Actually, what I want to do is send data to the webserver via a cookie. I am keeping counts of some of the events on the web page, like mouse clicks. And I am putting that info in a cookie.

But I need to know if/when the data in the cookie was actually sent as part of another script's AJAX calls.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
