Use Fiddler to monitor network traffic

Use Fiddler to monitor network trafficBeing able to easily monitor your network traffic is very helpful when working with APIs as well as Web Scraping.

In these two videos I demonstrate how to use Fiddler to monitor network traffic.  Fiddler is a great, free, tool that can help you see what traffic is going on behind the scenes from browsers, programs, apps, and AutoHotkey.  FYI- If you don’t care to use Fiddler / an external tool, a lot of this can be done with the developer tools inside a browser however they are somewhat limited in functionality.  I’ve tried other network monitoring tools but they are ridiculously complex.
