      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.

      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)
