Subject Re: Rename "HTTP Proxy Server" ?
Date Wed, 11 Sep 2013 08:28:24 GMT

I've prefer keep the word "proxy" in the name.
"Test" is an ambiguous word, means in my mind "test" (like beta-test). 
Word like "script" seems better.

- HTTP(S) Proxy Recorder
- HTTP(S) Proxy Test Recorder
- Web Proxy Recorder
- Web Proxy for Test Recorder
- Web Proxy for Script Recorder
- Web Proxy Script Recorder

Web Proxy Recorder is my favorite.
