HTTP Time Protocol (HTP)?
HTP is not really a protocol, but uses a feature from HTTP, aka web traffic. According the specifications of HTTP (RFC 2616) a web server needs to put a timestamp in a response to a web browser request. In web browsers you don't see the HTTP headers, but these headers contain a timestamp in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), accurate in seconds.
These timestamps, from various web servers which you may specify, can be used to extract a pretty good time.
If you have the Perl module LWP installed you can see the HTTP headers, especially the line which contains Date:
