What do you want to see next?

You can actually get them compared in the UI but it requires specifying things manually on the url. If you look at the URL in the filmstrip view, there is a list of comma separated tests. Each one of those tests can have some options specified that will let you specify which exact run you want to use, a specific label and if you want the first view or repeat view.

An example is probably helpful: http://www.webpagetest.org/video/compare...eat%20View

-r:X will let you specify a run (where X is the run)
-l:Label will let you specify a label to use
-c:X will let you specify first (X=0) or repeat (X=1) view

The only thing missing is figuring out how to present it to the user for them to select without confusing them (UI was never my strong suit).

This is incredible!! Smile I'm on my knees! Once again - thank you very much.
Until now I was writing scripts to automate httpwatch to compare the first and the next visit. You have made my life much, much easier.

Regarding thread's topic:
- besides scheduling tests the great enhancement would be support for other browsers. Firefox and chrome were already mentioned here, but as Opera claims to be the most fast of all, comparing Opera with others on the real websites would be very nice.
- a small enhancement for those who run private installations would be a support for other than 80 port. At least it is partly supported right now, as test machine can download the job from any http port, but unfortunately it can't post results to the other than default http port.

And about the scheduled tests: most of the people who require such option are related somehow with IT world. Probably some of them come from technical teams, so they can manage to install and configure the private installations. Maybe this is possible to introduce on hosted version scheduling only once an hour per domain/url, and those who require more frequent tests will be able to run them on privately hosted versions?
