VSTS 2008 SP1 and IE8 ...

IE8 is coming up soon as Beta 2 is already out in the open, and one of the major changes in IE8 - I actually just came across it by chance - is that IE8 opens up to 6 concurrent connections per host compared to only 2 in IE7.

That leads to the question of Does VSTS support IE8? Will it really open the 6 connections per host?

Well luckly the answer to both questions are YES ...

  • VSTS 2008 SP1 has the IE8 Option in the Browser Mix
  • By testing IE8 in the load test, it worked :)
    It opened 6 concurrent connections per host.
    The test was created by having a load test with one web test in it, and one concurrent user, once ran against IE7 and another run against IE8.
