[erlang-questions] web proxy

Hello,

I want to record all traffic between my browser and the Internet.

What I want is a record of

    1) the request
    2) the number of bytes in the response
    3) some timing data

When I fetch a web page.

I'd like this data (if possible) in the form of event messages being sent
to an Erlang program.

Why do I want this?

I was horrified by reading
http://blog.lmorchard.com/2015/07/22/the-verge-web-sucks/
and wanted to accurately record exactly how much data is involved when
I request a web page. The I want see how much is content and how much
is crap.

Any ideas

/Joe
