Fiddler Ideas

The free web debugging proxy for any browser, system or platform.

Default view set to Inspectors > Raw

Since the primary use-case for Fiddler is to observe the raw traffic within requests, I believe most Fiddler users would benefit from having the default view set to Inspectors > Raw when launching the application. At least for the Response data.

    You can set whatever default inspector you like, but "Raw" is pretty much the worst inspector and is almost never the best choice for many reasons (e.g. most traffic isn't textual).

    Click Rules > Customize Rules. Uncomment/modify the code in OnBoot:

     

     static function OnBoot() {
            UI.ActivateRequestInspector("RAW");
            UI.ActivateResponseInspector("RAW");
        }
