What is my browser sending to the host site ?

Hi,

I won't lie to you. I'm trying to get data from html source from a 3rd
party website. I'm NOT interested in stealing code,hacking,sending
spam or anything sinister like that. I just want the content that is
displayed but I need to get it automatically via VB. It's only
publicly available price information but I don't think the website
wants everyone to be scraping their info into a database.

Apart from the base URL, the site concerned navigates solely through
javascript functions and session variables. I suppose what I'm asking
is, is there anything out there that tells me (the syntax) of what my
browser is actually sending to a website when I click a javascript
toolbar/button/dropdown within IE.

I see from the tone of other posts that getting inside someone else's
javascript might not be very popular, so I understand if you'd rather
not respond.

So you attempt to copy their content without permission,
violating copyright. Great. NOT.
