Talk: Selenium based load testing: some real progress!

Since the mid 90′ little progress was made to overcome shortcomings of load test tools regarding measurements at Browser level.

This breakthrough increases the quality of our measurements, enables new shift left options, reduces scripting time and allows us to test previously „untestable“ Browser based applications.
