The GUI requirement is the tough part here.  There are dozens of
command-line programs that can do roughly what you want (all with
slightly different capabilities, naturally), but a graphical tool
doesn't typically make sense for this purpose.  That's because it's
an automated function by nature.

Last time I needed something like this (years ago now) I did it with
lynx, but one of the other options in ports might serve your wishes
better.
