Fiddler is a great free web diagnostic tool that nearly everyone uses, but they typically use it only for very basic things. If all you need is to see the requests made between the browser and web server, the browser devtools can do that. Fiddler has many more advanced features that most developers don't know about. You can use it to capture traffic from smartphones, tablets, and non-Windows platforms. Discover the power of manipulating requests and responses with breakpoints, the auto responder, and a visual composer. Review popular extensions for formatting JavaScript, syntax highlighting, and detecting image bloat. Go beyond the basics and learn the full capabilities of the tool and how it can improve your web development and debugging techniques today.

You will learn:

  • How to troubleshoot problems on phones, tablets, and non-Windows devices
  • Find extensions that add new capabilities to Fiddler
  • How to manipulate requests and responses to see how the browser and web server will act differently
