Happy St. Patrick's Day - Cloud-based testing tools
Just ran into BrowserMob a cloud-based load testing tool based on Firefox and Amazon EC2.
It allows you to throw hundreds or thousands of "virtual users" at your web site simultaneously. Unlike most load testing tools however, it uses actual browsers (Firefox) to do the work which can give you a more realistic experience than simulation.
I'll be trying this on my next web app.
