    When recording a new Web Browser-Driven (AJAX) script in Silk Performer, is it possible to record it using a Chrome web browser?



    Chrome web browser is not supported when recording an AJAX script in Silk Performer



    With Silk Performer version 20.0 and earlier, it is not possible to record a Web Browser-Driven (AJAX) script using Chrome.  The only web browser that can record AJAX scripts is Internet Explorer.

    Below are links to MicroFocus's documentation and a video stating that Web Browser-Driven (AJAX) scripts have to be recorded with Internet Explorer:
    "Silk Performer uses Internet Explorer to record browser-driven scripts."
    " With the browser-driven load testing support, Silk Performer strives to offer the same functionality and behavior across all supported browsers. This makes it possible to record your scripts in the Internet Explorer-based Browser Application and replay them with Firefox and Chrome."
