The new Fiddler Everywhere version comes with a new Apple Silicon build, an improved user login experience and Extended Offline Support, and many new highly requested features!
We have been working on a separate Fiddler Everywhere package explicitly built to run on Mac machines with M-series chips—M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max, M1 Ultra, M2 and any new Apple Silicon processors. If you are using a machine with the Apple Silicon chip, you can now download the specific version from our Fiddler Everywhere Download page.
The new build addresses some performance issues you might have faced previously in Fiddler Everywhere and provides a smoother work process within the application. Automatic updates are available for the Apple Silicon version as well, ensuring your app is always up to date.
The new releases introduce functionality that extends your in-product access even if you go offline. For a limited time, you can use all features that do not require cloud access, such as capturing and analyzing local (or already captured) traffic, applying Rules on the captured requests, comparing sessions, and more. If you do not have internet connectivity, the app will no longer log you out automatically—it will continue to run, and you will not lose the data you have worked on during your session.
You will notice a new icon at the top navigation bar of Fiddler Everywhere, which shows you the state of your app and whether you have a connection to our servers. If you don’t, you will also see a counter that shows how much time you have before the app asks you for credentials to re-authenticate. At this point, you will need to have your network connectivity restored to continue using Fiddler Everywhere.
We have further improved the bypass of domains functionality based on your feedback and insights! From now on, the domains you specify in the bypass list will be ignored in the operating system bypass list and from Fiddler’s internal list, which sessions need to be decrypted. So, Fiddler will not replace the HTTPS certificate of such sessions anymore. This will help resolve common issues with applications that use certificate pinning.
When specified in the bypass list, no traffic from this domain will be captured in Fiddler Everywhere, whether you are using the system traffic capturing or the Open Browser button option. If you want to debug iOS or Android devices, Fiddler Everywhere will capture only CONNECT tunnels from the specified domains. In addition, the CONNECT tunnels can be filtered out from the Live Traffic grid through one of the multiple filtering options we provide.
You can add which domains to ignore in one of two ways:
In the new Fiddler Everywhere version, you can decode values from different formats without using external tools. You can initiate the option by selecting a value from the Request or the Response dialogs in the Inspector and right-clicking to choose “Decode Selection.” You can decode values from the following formats: Base64, Escape sequences, Encoded URLs, Hex and Encoded HTML.
As mentioned, the decode selection works on values from any tab of the Request and the Response sections. When you click to decode the value, you will see a tooltip with the original value at first and respective buttons that allow you to choose one or multiple formats from which you want to apply decoding. For convenience, you can also copy the original or the decoded value and this is now all possible right out of the box with Fiddler Everywhere.
Another feature we added to Fiddler Everywhere is for the app to recognize the OS theme you are using, and apply it in the app. If you suddenly experience a theme change, it is because Fiddler Everywhere will detect your system setup and apply the Default Light or the Default Dark theme, respectively.
Keep in mind that we have two more themes available in the app to choose from—Light Blue and Dark Blue. If you do not want to use the Auto theme, you can open Settings and select your preferred appearance through the Themes tab.
In addition to the new functionalities that Fiddler Everywhere offers with the 3.4 release version, we also introduced several improvements, such as:
