Fiddler Alternatives

    Fiddler is described as 'Web Debugging Proxy which logs all HTTP(S) traffic between your computer and the Internet. Fiddler allows you to inspect all HTTP(S) traffic, set breakpoints, and "fiddle" with incoming or outgoing data' and is a well-known app in the Development category. There are more than 25 alternatives to Fiddler for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Online / Web-based and Google Chrome. The best alternative is Wireshark, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Fiddler are Charles (Paid), mitmproxy (Free, Open Source), OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) (Free, Open Source) and Burp Suite (Freemium).

      OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) vs Fiddler opinions
      This alternative is disputed. OWASP Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is still a legitimate alternative to Fiddler, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
