Mitmproxy is a third-party open-source tool (found here in github) that allows the recording of a live web page and saving it as a playback archive. Using Mitmproxy's 'mitmdump' tool, the recorded page can be played back through a local proxy browser proxy; then browsing to the URL loads the page from the mitmproxy recording instead of the live site.
The Raptor performance testing framework uses Mitmproxy for Raptor page-load performance tests. Mitmproxy is available as a python mozbase/mozproxy module for import in any python project.
Noise (regarding performance tests)
Raptor is a performance testing framework used for running browser page-load and browser benchmark tests. Raptor can run performance tests on Firefox desktop, Firefox android (Fennec, Geckoview example app, and the android components Reference Browser), and Google Chrome/Chromium. For more information please refer to the Raptor wiki page.
These terms are of use, especially when doing Performance sheriffing.
