sure, you can write a Listener/Tap for Wireshark, either in C or in Lua ( ). Within that Listener you can aggregate data and do whatever you need, including the visualization of 'third parties websites'.

See the code of packet-http.c (look for: register_tap("http")). The HTTP dissector registers a TAP (Listener) to be able to Export HTTP objects (File -> Export Objects -> HTTP).

See also: README.developer and README.tapping.
