The question is not clear. What do you want to do?
Record a Web (HTTP/HTML) script using Google Chrome or Firefox browser? That is possible
Record a TruClient script using these browsers? LoadRunner brings these browsers with it. You need to use the browsers provided by LoadRunner: Chromium and Firefox from these specific versions.
The browser do not run LoadRunner. LoadRunner uses it to record a script or to replay as well in TruClient case
I am using google crome and some times firefox to recording the script in vu gen.
is there any problem to use crome and firefox for recording script or do i have to use any particular browser (mandatory) always, like to record a script i.e IE,Crome ,forefox?
LoadRunner supports IE, Chrome, FF and Edge (starting from version 12.53) when recording in Web (HTTP / HTML) Protocol.
There is no mandatory browser, but you should note the release notes in each version as to the minimal requirements of the browsers. for example, in 12.50, support for IE8 has been discontinued, and in 12.53 - support for IE9 has been discontinued.
With regards to TruClient protocol - it supports the 3 major browsers (IE, FF, Chromium) but note that you use what is supplied with the release, and not the browser that is installed on the machine itself.
Hope this helps,
Nothing is mandatory 🙂 it is all a matter of what you wish to accomplish in your performance test.
it is great to choose Web protocol as you chose and use Chrome as the browser of choice.
I suggest you read about TruClient in the online documentation here, and I also suggest you consult with the LoadRunner online help while you are working your way through the tutorial (as I believe you are doing)
