Different result running test with "https://" vs without. - jace - 08-27-2019 05:37 PM

Hi guys, I'm running some test and I just found out that the test results are different when running test like this:

First run (with https://):

Result:

Second run (without https://):

Result:

Can anyone give me some insights to this? What's the difference running same site with "https://" and without. I'm a newbie and freshie.

Thanks in advance.

In the second one, looking at the first request, the response is a redirect. For this case that redirect is basically just wasted time, since it had to turn around and make the right 'https://' request afterwards.
