I should be less opaque.

 

Fiddler is a system proxy (under platforms augmented with .NET, from
Microsoft or open source). It's a system web proxy like any other -
targeting instances of browsers operating on the desktop of the invoking
user. But, for the user it can now host a https server endpoint on the same
PC. Think of it as a mini web server (with simple scripting), when not also
acting as a browser proxy.

 

It works for Mozilla as well as IE. Its seems to hook fine into Opera too,
as a system proxy.

 

Should have interesting webid uses. It's an https "endpoint", not an https
web server, formally.
