    The tool will record everything that the browser requests, and this includes all redirections and frame requests. There is a way to record a 'pure' http level script and ignore all the browser events that are usually used to create the script. In the Options->Recording->Proxy settings there is a "Record Navigations in external applications" checkbox. Please turn this on, and press the Start Button.

    Start IE or Firefox. I recommend you start firefox since it is much easier to manager multiply configurations. You can have IE and one firefox profile for day-to-day browsing, IM, ect..., and one firefox for e-tester recording. When firefox starts you should create a new "Proxy Recording" profile. In this profile change the firefox connection settings to use a Proxy Server localhost, port 7777

    Always start Firefox this way:
    "\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -ProfileManager -no-remote

    Now when you start your regular script recording, and you have the etester proxy recorder turned on, you will get only raw http requests from the browser. As Dave mentioned, it is easiest to view these requests from the Navigation Editor.
