Web Browser Recorder Extensions for both Chrome and Firefox

Web Browser Extension - Introduction

This browser extension will ask for the RealLoad proxy configurations, then automatically set Proxy in the browser. Using the extension user can clear cache, start recording, stop recording, clear recording and add page breaks while recording the user journeys in the browser.

Before you start installing the browser extension, please make sure that you have already followed the steps mentioned in the doc HTTP/S Remote Proxy Recorder and imported the Proxy Server CA Root Certificate.
