What is Element?

Element is a browser based load test tool that allows you to create scripts quickly in Typescript. Element can use your web app in the same way that your customers do, opening a browser and interacting with page elements. It's written like a functional test script, but with the help of Flood, you can easily run a load test on as many nodes you want in the cloud.
