Adam Goucher has a clever idea to automate YSlow reporting to a Show Slow database with Selenium.

Well, I tried this with my Selenium RC setup, testing one page. In my setup, two beacons are sent by YSlow to the Show Slow database but the urls recorded,

http://localhost:3000/selenium-server/core/Blank.html?start=true
and
chrome://src/content/RemoteRunner.html?sessionId=2d7695881a3881f940ada5bc889a6dee&multiWindow=true&baseUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fintegrate.crashingdaily.com&debugMode=false&driverUrl=http://localhost:3000/selenium-server/driver/

are not the ones for the page under test. Neither report generated from selenium matches the report I get from the standalone browser so it’s not just a matter of the url being misreported to Show Slow.

disappointing.
