Actually, CharlesProxy is a Java tool, AFAIK. And personally I'm really
not that sure that it rocks, but personal opinions do vary :) 

As a free alternative, webscarab can handle the man-in-the-middle
interception too.

Consider also using FoxyProxy (a FF addon), to direct only the URLs you
are interested into a the logging proxy.
