I've got a very feeble web server. The crypto handshaking involved in opening an https: connection takes 2-3 seconds. That would be fine if a browser opened a single connection and then sent a series of requests on that connection to load the various elements on a page.

But that's not what browsers do. They all seem to open whole handful of connections (often as many as 8-10) and try to load all the page's elements in parallel. That turns what would be a 3-4 second page load time (using a single connection) into a 20-30 second page load time. Even with plaintext http: connections, the multi-connection page load time is slower than the single-connection load time, but not by as large a factor.

Some browsers have user-preference settings that limit the max number of simultaneous connections to a single server (IIRC the RFCs suggest a max of 4, but most browsers seem to default to a max of 8-16).

What I really need is an HTTP header or meta-tag or something that I can use to tell clients to limit themselves to a single connection.

I haven't been able to find such a thing, but I'm hoping I've overlooked something...

Is there any browser simulator that fulfills these requirements:

  • gem written in Ruby
  • automatically performing Ajax and Javascript code (XSS is not an issue in my case)
  • independent of the frameworks used by the website (Rails, JavaEE, ASP.NET, ...)
  • only client-side
  • no testing
  • no browser dependency
