West Wind WebSurge is an easy to use Http Request and Load Testing tool that makes it easy to capture or create a series of Http requests, and test them either interactively individually or under heavy load for stress testing an application. WebSurge's goal is to make it quick and easy create, manage and play back Http requests both interactively and under load. No complex setup and a smooth and fast UI flow to quickly view, run and manage requests.

WebSurge also works as an alternative to the popular PostMan tool, with a more streamlined User Interface.

Use our built-in Web capture tool to capture and filter Web sessions or use Telerik's Fiddler to capture and import requests from any HTTP source. Alternately you can use the manual request editor to create requests quickly. All Http request data is stored as plain text Http headers, so it's easy to create, share, edit or generate test sessions manually or via code.

Load test sessions run a session of Http requests under heavy load and report simple results back via a summary screen. You can export the result report, or the raw test data. Finally a command line application is also available to automate load tests from the terminal and capture results for automation or tests.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
