Why web_url() function takes longer to execute in HTML mode than in HTTP mode?
web_url() function takes more time in HTML mode compared to HTTP mode
In HTML mode , the replay engine will parse the incoming HTML and download relevant resources such as images/scripts/css. Parsing the incoming HTML and downloading the extra resource takes more time. In HTTP mode , the replay engine will download only the requested page (adding redirections/authentications if needed) but it will not parse the incoming HTML and will not download other resources.
