This is old news for those who already use it, but man Charles is helpful when you are working on web apps and caching.
What is Charles?
Charles is an HTTP proxy / HTTP monitor / Reverse Proxy that enables a developer to view all of the HTTP and SSL / HTTPS traffic between their machine and the Internet. This includes requests, responses and the HTTP headers (which contain the cookies and caching information).
Charles is also useful if you’d like to sniff the web traffic of your iOS devices.
Anyways if you haven’t already, check out the demo. If you are debugging network code this is tremendously valuable tool.
