httpMonitor is a Python program which lets you monitor the HTTP traffic between a browser and a Web server. You configure your browser to use httpMonitor as its proxy to ensure that all HTTP traffic between browser and server goes via httpMonitor. In a XML-configuration file you can specify a Python-function as processor for the HTTP-messages you are interested in (requests or responses, which match certain criteria). You may have as many processors as you want, without modifying the actual program. The only thing you need to do is configure the httpMonitor and write your processors.
