protobuf decoder for requests and responses

Like the JSON and XML tabs, there should be a Protobuf tab that offers to decode protobuf requests and responses.

    The compiled version of ProtoMiddler is no longer available and the solution isn't compilable anymore as the libraries have changed it's API. Some basic support for Protobuf in Fiddler would really be appreciated.

    I face with Protobuf http requests and responces very often and always have to use protoc.exe -raw_decode.

    Would be very happy to see protobuf decoder built-in Fiddler.

    Look at how Charles proxy does it: https://www.charlesproxy.com/documentation/using-charles/protocol-buffers/

    Works pretty well in practice.

    Protobuf is somewhat more complicated than XML and JSON as you need a scheme to parse the data. 

    See https://github.com/SecurityInnovation/ProtoMiddler for a third-party implementation.
