Requestly Update – May, 2024

Hey Requestlians 👋,

Here is some progress we made in May and a quick sneak peek of what we’re up to.

Introducing a new pricing option – Lite Plan

  • Access to all HTTP Modification Types
  • GraphQL Modifications
  • Overriding & Stubbing API Responses
  • Injecting Scripts
  • Unlimited Header Modifications
  • Upto 5 API Mocks

Check out the Lite Plan here → https://requestly.io/pricing

Manifest V3 Rollout (Huge Thanks)

Last month, we shared the beta version with you with MV3 changes. We asked for feedback on our beta track and we really appreciate the support, feedback, and bug reports. We have rolled out the MV3 version in a controlled manner and as I type this post, all the new users of Requestly and 10% of our userbase are already on MV3. We plan to do the complete rollout by the end of this month.

Refer this GitHub Issue for more details – https://github.com/requestly/requestly/issues/1690

Introducing RequestBot – AI Assistant in Requestly

We’ve introduced RequestBot aka “Ask AI” feature. You can ask RequestBot anything about Requestly and It can help you quickly understand what Requestly can help with. Here are some helpful prompts that you can try

  • How to Override API Responses?
  • How to record HTTP Session?
  • How to solve CORS Issue?
  • How to record HTTP status code

Best ModHeader Alternative

Lately, A lot of Modheader users are moving to Requestly. Modheader is in the news for injecting Ads and their recent release made the product very unstable. If you are looking for an alternative, Requestly can be a great option and with the Lite Plan, you get unlimited HTTP header modifications.

We also support Requestly to be used in automation So if you need to use Requestly for modifying API Responses or modifying HTTP headers, contact us.
