Rex Swain's HTTP Viewer
Rex Swain is a consultant and needed a way to see easily what was going on
behind the scenes of various web sites when he clicked in. So, he wrote an

given web page, showing you stuff your browser normally hides.

relevant to you and study pages of results.

country. Perhaps you fancy mydomain.cx or greatsite.tv - well this database
tells you whether it is possible and who to ask.
