Requestly over Charles Proxy
Charles Proxy was built 2-decades ago with no updates anymore. Requestly is a modern browser-first open-source software that accelerates web development and testing workflows.
1. Zero Setup
Just Download Requestly in your browser and you are good to go in a few clicks while in Charles you need to install the application, manage system-level proxy settings, and install an SSL certificate.
2. No VPN Issue
Since Charles Proxy overrides system-level proxy settings, it doesn’t work well inside corporate VPNs. Requestly uses Chrome’s APIs to intercept & modify HTTPs requests and hence Requestly is free from all VPN issues.
