Instant New Relic Synthetic-friendly scripts. What this means is you can now out-source the creation of Synthetic scripts to (mostly) non-technical people - the more people involved from different areas, the better your coverage of business-critical processes will be. Even if they can provide you (the technical person) with a click path/data, this still makes your life a lot easier by removing the need to fiddle with syntax, and ensures that maintenance is not a big deal down the road. Yes, UI-based tests are still fragile, but in this case it's a necessary evil to ensure that the customer experience remains satisfactory/functional. Anyways, some pretty powerful tools! Fun and useful.
