It provides a robust set of features, including the ability to intercept and edit requests, replay requests, and map local files to a server, making it a comprehensive tool for web development and debugging.

On the other hand, Requestly is an open source tool available as both browser extension and desktop app. It allows users to set up rules for modifying URLs, injecting scripts, and redirecting requests. It also provides a broad range of functionalities, including the ability to manipulate both request and response data, debug mobile apps, mock API endpoints, and record sessions making it a versatile tool for front-end developers.

From Debug to Deploy: Developers Trust Requestly

I’m a big fan of Requestly, and use it on a daily basis as a QA Engineer. It removes the need to use Charles Proxy often, which is always nice. I can just use Requestly directly in Chrome

Mike Mitchell
QA Engineer at URBN

Awesome tool. I use it almost daily for my projects to modify request body, headers, etc. Would recommend it to every frontend developer out there. Thank me later 🙂 (Case Study)

Harsh Vats
Frontend Engineer at PingSafe

This is by far the best tool for managing request headers! Plus the developers are very active meaning you’ll get help if you’re ever stuck or need help solving a problem. I use it daily and couldn’t be happier.

App works as expected! Ran into some small issues while creating the rules but the support team was able to help and overcome those.

Requestly is user-friendly, brilliant and easy-to-use. I use it on an daily basis and it makes my work easier. After using other tools like Charles – Requestly is a nice new breath of air that I highly vouch for. Apart from the tool being amazing – the support from the Requestly team is phenomenal with them always going above and beyond for their clients.

Requestly is an amazing tool to get your development work less hassle. The product itself has evolved so much since day-1 and the company is really serious on helping their customer solves their problems. We had this nice session where they shared Requestly features and we were very impressed on its potential. A truly 5-star worthy.

Simple UI, Huge Impact Loved the intuitive UI for request body modification. Helped in confirming backend security with my senior engineer, even bested Postman Interceptor in some cases.

Ashish Amar
Associate Software Engineer at Rakuten Symphony

Requestly is awesome. I used to use Charles proxy in my day-to-day work but it always messed with my wifi. I haven’t had any issues with Requestly. Requestly’s UI is an amazing tool and great to work in.

Requestly not just made it easier for us to develop, test & debug our code on our customer sites but also helped us do engaging product demos to our prospective clients.
