Firefox 44+ support for brotli compression ? - eva2000 - 11-23-2015 12:14 PM

Does WPT have any support or options for Firefox 44+ browser testing ? I have compiled Nginx with ngx_brotli https://github.com/google/ngx_brotli/ support for brotli compression and only Firefox 44+ have support for it http://caniuse.com/#feat=brotli

cheers

Test agents are usually on the release version of Firefox. I ran a test from the "California USA - EC2" location and the user agent is listed as Firefox/42.0. Version 42 is the current official release.

From what I've read timeline for Firefox 44 is January 2016.

You could set up a WebPageTest test agent and specifically install Firefox 44 if you wanted to try it out before then - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Releases/44
