Fiddler Quick Start Guide - HTTP Debuging Software Video
Installing fiddler couldn't be easier. Simply go to http://www.fiddlertool.com/ and click the download link and download Fiddler. Run the installer and follow the wizard. Like most programs with a Windows installer, Fiddler can be installed with just a few mouse clicks.
Running Fiddler is as easy as selecting it's icon in the start menu. When Fiddler starts up it will check to make sure that the version that you have is the current version of the software. It will then start capturing events. (It often starts capturing before it checks for a new version — adding its check for a current version to the capture log.) Figure 1 shows the Fiddler window right after startup.
If at this point you make a request via Internet Explorer or Mozilla FireFox and you'll instantly see a list of the web requests that are being made. This list will continue to grow until you turn off capturing (in the File menu) or clear all of the events (in the Edit menu). Perhaps the first thing to notice is that there are a lot of requests happening &mash; many of which that you might never have thought about or considered. Figure 2 shows some of the requests that occurred opening the Developer.com home page.
A single web page can be made up of over 100 individual requests.
Fiddler is helpful in two ways, the first way you've already seen. Requests are instantly logged and displayed in summary. However, this just tells you overall what happened it doesn't allow you to dig into the details to understand what is happening with each request. That's why you need to dig into the Session Inspector.

What is Fiddler?
Fiddler is a Web Debugging Proxy which logs all HTTP(S) traffic between your computer and the Internet. Fiddler allows you to inspect traffic, set breakpoints, and "fiddle" with incoming or outgoing data. Fiddler includes a powerful event-based scripting subsystem, and can be extended using any .NET language.
Fiddler is freeware and can debug traffic from virtually any application that supports a proxy, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, and thousands more. You can also debug traffic from popular devices like Windows Phone, iPod/iPad, and others. To debug applications you've written in Java, .NET, or using WinHTTP
Fiddler is an HTTP debugging proxy server application written by Eric Lawrence, formerly a Program Manager on the Internet Explorer team at Microsoft. It captures HTTP(S) traffic and logs it for the user to review. It can also be used to "fiddle" with HTTP traffic as it is being sent. By default, traffic from Microsoft's WinINET HTTP(S) stack is automatically directed to the proxy at runtime, but any browser or application (and most mobile devices) can be configured to route its traffic through Fiddler.
