    A while ago I wrote a simple .har parser which I still use sometimes. It works perfectly fine for the files from FF and Chrome. Recently I have tried Fiddler and found it very useful, however, my parser failed to parse Fiddler' .har

    When I looked into this .har I can see it has no line delimiters which makes it hard to parse.

    Has it been done on purpose or I can change it somehow? Basically, I would like to have the same format as produced by Chrome and FF

    Hi, Yuriy--

    The HAR specification formats the data as JSON and does not call for line feeds anywhere within the file. As such, Fiddler does not insert line feeds anywhere within the file.

    I'm not aware of any JSON parsers that expect line feeds.
