What is the difference between using the recorder and setting the test case manually by using sessions captured in Fiddler.

The recorder helps to avoid mistakes in capturing a test case by adding some automation,  but you can do the same manually if you're following these rules:
 
 

 
Before the recording:
    - open a new browser instance;

    - clear browser cache;

    - clear all unrelated sessions in Fiddler.



During the recording:

    - make sure that the initial portion of the test case, including a login process or the initial requests which establish a browser session, are captured;

    - make sure that no unrelated traffic from other browsers or applications is captured.  Delete any unrelated sessions from the Fiddler before setting a test case.



After Fiddler captured your entire test scenario, click Set All Sessions to set the test case.
 
One limitation that recorder has, is that for recording the test case you need to use Internet Explorer. If you setting the test case manually, you can use any browser, non-browser application  or  even client running from a different machine or  from a mobile device.
