More of Charles Features
The following features are what I believe to be the key features of Charles. The best way to explore these features and to discover others is to download the free trial.
- SSL Proxying
Charles can act as a man-in-the-middle for HTTP/SSL communication, enabling you to debug the content of your HTTPS sessions.
- Bandwidth Throttling
Charles simulates modem speeds by effectively throttling your bandwidth and introducing latency, so that you can experience an entire website as a modem user might (bandwidth simulator).
Charles is great for Adobe Flash developers as you can view the contents of LoadVariables, LoadMovie and XML loads. Charles also has native support for Flash Remoting (AMF0 and AMF3).
- Autoconfigure Browser & System Proxy Settings
Charles will autoconfigure your browser’s proxy settings on the following browsers: – Windows system proxy settings (includes Internet Explorer and most other applications) – Mac OS X system proxy settings (includes Safari and most other applications) – Mozilla Firefox (on all platforms)
What’s New in 3.6.5 Version?
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.
Charles is a Java application, it requires version 1.4 or later of the JRE or JDK from Sun. You probably already have the JRE or JDK on your computer as it comes with many operating systems. When you try to run Charles it will notify you if you don’t have the necessary software.
- Install the program and don’t run.
