I want to find out how many packets are sent when visiting a site on the web. What's a good program that would help me get this kind of data?

    Just run a capture with wireshark and see for yourself. – Sven Jul 30 '14 at 12:27

You could obtain the number by using Wireshark on your machine. This is a very common packet analyzer.

Here is some good documentation on how to use it. There's a plethora of resources on it though.
