Example Problem(s) it solves:
- You just started using WCF and you want to see if message is really encrypted
- You want to trace AJAX messages

Installation Notes: Fiddler 2 supports debugging HTTPS traffic, a richer extensibility model, and can by installed side-by-side with Fiddler 1.x if desired. Note that Fiddler 2 requires version 2.0 of the .NET Framework.

Usage Notes: localhost does not proxy by default .. Ie use http://localhost./... Or use the machine name
