Last month Richard compared the website performance of Manchester City and Manchester United. In a similar fashion to their early season win over their rivals, City romped to victory with their homepage rendering nearly three times faster than United’s.  David Moyes thankfully wasn’t at fault, and Richard suggested that third party content was a major reason for United’s shortfall.Today will see the two teams pitted against each other once again.

The roadmap for LoadRunner 12 was presented at HP Discover Barcelona in December last year. Since that time, I've been lucky enough to have a beta copy of LR12 for evaluation purposes. Now that the product has been released, I'm able to share some of the new features that I've found to a wider audience.
