I’m much more accustomed to doing development on a windows machine. On windows, there is an invaluable tool that all web developers use (or should be using) to help them understand what’s happening on the HTTP pipeline. That application is called Fiddler.

Since I started doing more development on my Mac, i have struggled to find a good, simple HTTP sniffer like Fiddler, till today. I’ve tried Charles, and I didn’t like it. I downloaded the trial to HttpScoop and so far its simple, easy to use, no need to set up proxies. I like it, and I think i will end up purchasing it.
