With version 19.0, Silk Performer has extended the browser support for browser-driven load testing. This means that you can now replay browser-driven load test scripts also with Chrome and Firefox. Silk Performer has been offering the browser-driven technology for quite a long time now - it has been introduced in 2010. This blog post will give you a quick introduction to the basics of the browser-driven technology, and then we will show you how to use both Chrome and Firefox to replay a browser-driven script. So, let's get going.
Silk Performer uses Internet Explorer to record browser-driven scripts. To replay these scripts, you can use either Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome.
Although these browsers basically resemble each other, they can behave quite differently in a variety of circumstances. The varying behavior can be particularly obvious when replaying the very same script with different browsers. In this blog post you can find a number of areas where you might encounter differences or issues.
