Chrome Replay - LeptienM - 10-13-2011 12:03 AM

Hi Pat!

Awesome that you are supporting Firefox now!
While testing that I saw Chrome Replay. Is that new? If yes, am I correct in the assumption, that Replay is the thing Mike Belshe wrote about? Which means mirroring a full page download in a closed controlled (network) environment?

Best wishes,
Markus

We launched Replay around the time of Velocity in June. Yes, it is the same platform that Mike was talking about ( http://code.google.com/p/web-page-replay/ ) and it basically records a page and then lets you test the same page with the back-ends completely eliminated.

Setting it up you need to run Replay on a separate server and then just add the appropriate settings to the wptdriver.ini config (if you are setting it up for a private instance).

Thanks,

-Pat
