Fiddler has joined the Telerik family
September 10th, 2012
To the Fiddler community--
When I began the Fiddler project in 2003, I had only modest ambitions-- I wanted to build a simple little utility to display traffic between a desktop application and a web service. This "little" side project went on to devour a huge percentage of my nights and weekends for the next nine years, racking up millions of downloads and developing a vibrant community of extension builders and enthusiasts. However, despite its huge impact, Fiddler has remained an informal side project--I've never been able to give it 100% of my focus.
my passion for building Fiddler has only grown over the years as I have
watched the community adopt it and adapt it for use in scenarios I never
even dreamed about. The HTTP and HTTPS protocols have become even more
important in the last decade, and the ability to debug traffic on those
protocols is now a "mission-critical" requirement for many software and web
professionals. The number of services, scenarios, and devices using web
protocols has exploded, and new protocols built atop these protocols (e.g.
HTML5 Web Sockets) are now routinely devised. I have a clear vision of how
Fiddler will continue to evolve and become an even more powerful utility in
