Fiddler is a Web Debugging Proxy platform that monitors and modifies web traffic. This freeware tool enables developers, testers, and enthusiasts to inspect traffic, set breakpoints, and "fiddle" with incoming or outgoing data. Fiddler includes powerful event-based scripting, and can be extended using any .NET language. FiddlerCore, the core proxy engine underlying Fiddler, is available to integrate into any .NET application. In this book, you'll learn to fully exploit the power of Fiddler to debug traffic from virtually any web-related application, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and thousands more. You'll see how to debug HTTPS traffic, and use Fiddler with popular devices like iPhone/iPod/iPad, Windows Phone, and others. After exploring the hundreds of built-in features, you'll learn to extend Fiddler using the FiddlerScript engine or build your own applications atop the FiddlerCore class library.

    This book is *invaluable* if you work with Fiddler on a regular basis. I've learned tons of tricks this weekend. Am I the only one who didn't use the QuickExec? Wow! This feature and its commands need more marketing! Same thing with all the possibilities of the autoresponder and the replacements on the action text! I've been using Fiddler for six years, but in the last 48 hours I learned more than ever. The author clearly takes the "User Manual/Reference" approach, describing all the features in a logical way. Even if I read the full book, it's clear that you can skip chapters and go straight to what you need. IMHO, the book deserves a full read anyway, because you will find -for sure- features that you didn't know about, time savers. Another good point is that the contents are updated, to the point that it describes how to debug traffic from Windows 8 apps and HTML5 WebSockets. Also, you will find clear descriptions on how to debug traffic coming from other devices like... More > cell-phones, tablets, or even other OS like Mac. If you are a Fiddler user who is only scratching its surface, you will for sure go to the next level by reading (or even skimming) this book.< Less

    Fiddler is a very useful tool if you are involved in developing a web application. And, this book is an authoritative and thorough coverage of Fiddler 2, from the author of the tool. I am hard-pressed to recall ANY topic the author may have missed. The book contains discussion of every Fiddler feature I can think of, including how the reader can extend Fiddler using either the custom FiddlerScript language (for simple and lightweight tasks), or using one of the .Net languages, such as C# and VB.Net. The book even covers popular 3rd-party extensions for Fiddler. My only minor complaint is that though the writing is very clear and conveys all the required information, the style can be a little dry at times. However, this is the bane of most technical books. In summary, this book will help you get the most out of Fiddler, and will save you many hours of valuable time. At the current price ($10), the purchase is a no-brainer.
