Transaction response time for Web Protocol with different Internet Explorer (IE) versions. Here we are comparing IE 8 and IE 10.
1. Does the user agent setting in run time settings have any impact on response times in LoadRunner i.e. if we simulate IE10 browser with VuGen 11.52 compared to if we simulate MS IE 8.0 browser with VuGen 11.0x ?
