New Version 1.2

Version 1.2 has been upgraded from Beta to release. You can get it from

  • Renamed .FromString on headers to .AssignFromString
  • Minor robustness tweak for form posting parameters in Save-As-Webtest


  • Minor correction for pie redraw
  • Added drag/drop of text/files to QuickExec
  • UI.actLoadSessionArchive() made public
  • Enabled drag drop of .ZIP archive to session list
  • Setting a session flag to null removes it. TODO: Should the same apply to HTTP Headers?// Removing ui-hide flag in onBeforeResponse will now cause the session to show
  • New option on Headers inspector to edit all headers at once
  • HTTPRequestHeaders and HTTPResponseHeaders expose a new method - bool AssignFromString(sHeaderString)


  • Nice work Eric! There isn't a work-day goes by that I don't need Fiddler. So much better than Charles.

    Here's a suggestion, it's something I know I'd use, but I maybe in the minority.

    When you right-click on a line of the trace, have a menu option to "hide requests to this domain".

    I know I can do it by editing the JS file. I've done several changes to it myself. A quick and easy way (right-click) that would automatically add the appropriate code into the file for you would be nice.

  • Interesting; would you want these requests ignored only for the current session, or forever?

    We should probably move the discussion over to so that it's easier to track. :-)

  • I tried moving the thread to the msn group but my message hasn't shown up. It said the message needed to be approved by the moderator and seems to have got lost.

  • Simple enhancement: Elapsed Time

    I have a simple request: could you show the elapsed time for an HTTP request in the Performance Statistics or as a new column in the HTTP Session list? Sure, its great to know how long it would take to download a page in China, but for simple performance investigations, it would be handy to have that time recorded as well.

  • I would like such an elapsed time column also. I recall it being possible to implement it by some script changes but it wasn't clear and easy and would be much better as an integrated standard column.

  • The problem is that each column of data you add makes Fiddler a wee bit slower, and so I try to minimize the data shown by default. Adding the TTFB or TTLB information is pretty easy. Just click Rules, Customize Rules, and in the OnBeforeResponse handler, paste a line of script. You can see sample script code here:
