      scottfrost Many of the same features as Postman, but no sync unless you pay. This is a deal breaker to developers who work on multiple computers, like home & work PCs.

      Simple request chaining (right-click in the UI, no code or globals); Great workflow for when writing a fast-changing API

      Superb flexibility and cookie handling. An entire session with transactions can be constructed in Paw with it's ability to parse incoming data and extract potions for the next request.

      patheticcockroach Better features than Postman for my use case: I need full control over the headers, including the ability to remove them all, something which Postman doesn't allow to do (they add tons of junk headers)
