What is Fiddler?
- Fiddler is a free web debugging proxy which logs all HTTP(s) traffic between your computer's browser and the Application server.
- Fiddler installs itself as a local proxy which the browser traffic will be routed to before reaching its destination. This allows the user to analyze the requests that are sent between the browser and the website/web server.
How to use Fiddler
Install Fiddler on the client machine
Launch fiddler from the Start-> Programs menu
All traffic from web browsers will now be logged.
