    Hello,
    I've got a strange behavior of fiddler...I was debugging a wpf application that uses ServiceStack to access data.... and I've told to compress data with deflate... checking from chrome,ie,ffox I got my data compressed...in fiddler it seems the data arrives uncompressed...is this a common behavior? does fiddler 2 uncompress it and shows it in the response header as uncompressed?
    Thanks

    Hi, Paolo--

    Fiddler's Transformer tab is the best way to see the current compression and chunking of a response. It will also allow you to add and remove compression.

    If the Transformer shows that the content is uncompressed, there are three explanations:

    1. It was sent uncompressed.
    2. You have the Decode button depressed in the toolbar so everything is decompressed automatically
    3. You decompressed the content through some other means (a custom rule, the yellow decoder bar, or some other way)
