for any browser, system or platform

 

Fiddler

Key Features

Web Debugging

Debug traffic from PC, Mac or Linux systems and mobile devices. Ensure the proper cookies, headers and cache directives are transferred between the client and server. Supports any framework, including .NET, Java, Ruby, etc.

Performance Testing

Fiddler lets you see the “total page weight,” HTTP caching and compression at a glance. Isolate performance bottlenecks with rules like “Flag any uncompressed responses larger than 25kb.”

HTTP/HTTPS Traffic Recording

Fiddler is a free web debugging proxy which logs all HTTP(s) traffic between your computer and the Internet. Use it to debug traffic from virtually any application that supports a proxy like IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera and more.

Web Session Manipulation

Easily manipulate and edit web sessions. All you need to do is set a breakpoint to pause the processing of the session and permit alteration of the request/response. You can also compose your own HTTP requests to run through Fiddler.

Security Testing

Use Fiddler for security testing your web applications -- decrypt HTTPS traffic, and display and modify requests using a man-in-the-middle decryption technique. Configure Fiddler to decrypt all traffic, or only specific sessions.

Customizing Fiddler

Benefit from a rich extensibility model, ranging from simple FiddlerScript to powerful Extensions which can be developed using any .NET language.
