Customer Reviews

Keeps getting better!

The new data visualization and SOCKS/Dynamic forwarding features are fantastic! Very responsive developer as well. I use this every single day on every machine I have. The only thing I could really wish for is a full capture mode like ProxyCap (to support apps that don’t natively understand proxies), but that would just be icing on an already very nice cake!
