Spam Path Trace
A JavaScript and AJAX web page for checking the exact path that something like a link in a spam email takes through the internet. Spammers often put links in their spam to fake sites which set cookies and refer you automatically through a cascade of sites leading to the target page. This allows them to set cookies from a bunch of different sites. Normally, you can't read the changing address bar info fast enough to find out what is happening. This page saves all the evidence on the way to the target in a text field that you can read and/or copy.
