    1. The lack of a dynamic scripting language is annoying, though Tsung XML scenarios (again, just like JMeter) can include things like loops and if-statements, so it is actually possible to write all sorts of complicated user scenario “code.” The functionality is there, but the usability is not: few developers like “programming” in XML.
    1. We believe load test scripts should be plain code to get all the benefits of version control, as opposed to say unreadable and tool generated XML.

    1. The transformation of a page by Readability is pretty dramatic, and its use can lead to a focused conversation in the classroom about what has been removed, and why, and what has remained, and why. This forced awareness of the construction of a web page is valuable knowledge for young users of the web.

      This is an important thing to think about because if a student is always using "readability" then are they really learning how to read online. This sounds like a really helpful tool for students with OCD or ADHD.

    1. When you agree to the Terms of Use, you can continue with the registration process.

      The text edit for this Terms of Use is testing at a Grade Level of 10, as a whole. However, individual sentences test lower 6-8). The multi-syllabic words and unrecognized words (eg-Movember, TrueNTH) add to the increase in reading level. But all in all, I think the edit may read a little clearer.
