The BlazeMeter Chrome Extension is a very good Apache JMeter test plan recorder directly in the browser. It is a great improvement over the default JMeter recorder, which is a bit old-school and acts as a proxy on your system. Though BlazeMeter has not open sourced or contributed this back to the community, they do allow you to export valid JMeter test plans. We appreciate this free-to-use recorder and can quickly demonstrate recording and playing back at scale on RedLine13.
