Let's start by asking how much that you know about Fiddler?  Did you just install it, and now trying to figure out how to use it?

One possible scenario:

I work with a WCF 4 REST Service, and it has a been very valuable debug aid.  It can help you generate a SOAP/JSON request.  With newer versions of Fiddler, there is the Composer tab.  With older versions, it was called the Request Builder tab.  It lets you "compose" a request, and send it to the target server, and inspect the response.
