You can setup a rule that fires on any web traffic (port 80).  Then
also you can turn on basic text/syslog output in the snort.conf.  Then
you can browse the web and it alert on that rule.

in snort.conf
output alert_syslog: LOG_LOCAL6 LOG_ALERT

and in local.rules
alert tcp $HOME_NET any -> $EXTERNAL_NET $HTTP_PORTS (msg:"HTTP TEST";
