Charles

Charles is a web proxy (HTTP Proxy / HTTP Monitor) that runs on your own computer.

CharlesOverview

Charles is a web proxy (HTTP Proxy / HTTP Monitor) that runs on your own computer. Your web browser (or any other Internet application) is then configured to access the Internet through Charles, and Charles is then able to record and display for you all of the data that is sent and received.

In Web and Internet development you are unable to see what is being sent and received between your web browser / client and the server. Without this visibility it is difficult and time-consuming to determine exactly where the fault is. Charles makes it easy to see what is happening, so you can quickly diagnose and fix problems.

Charles makes debugging quick, reliable and advanced; saving you time and frustration!

NEW

Major bug fixes:

Java 1.7 now supported. Corrects slow startup and hung responses bugs.
Java 1.7 bad certificate error workaround for sites that use now disabled algorithms (ie. MD2withRSA)
Windows: Fix launching Charles by opening a file
SSL empty requests regression from 3.6.4 fixed
SSL now records the correct remote address details
SSL errors now more consistently displayed in the browser
Authentication header viewer can now recover from slightly oddly formatted headers
Closed connections regression from 3.6.4 fixed

Other changes:

Double-clicking a request no longer switches Structure and Sequence view. I did this too many times accidentally. The contextual menu now has an option to switch.
