Microsoft Fiddler HTTP Debugger Tool For Web Developers

Have you ever wondered how Microsoft Internet Explorer interacts with your Web application, or had a strange bug or performance bottleneck that you couldn't figure out? Ever need to know which cookies are being sent, or what downloaded content is cacheable?

While surfing around on the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN), I discovered a pretty cool developer's tool from Microsoft called "Fiddler."  Fiddler can help answer these questions, and many more. Fiddler is an HTTP debugging proxy that logs all HTTP traffic between your computer and the Internet. With Fiddler, web developers can inspect all HTTP traffic, set breakpoints, and "fiddle" with incoming or outgoing data. Fiddler is an unsupported power tool (dubbed a "PowerToy" by Microsoft) for Internet Explorer.
