tools/httptester/ is a "(scriptable) framework for regression-testing mozilla stuff." It appears to be entirely unused. It was added in August 2001 (https://github.com/mozilla/gecko-dev/commit/b3886c70ba34c6583bf3d96f545f832063493d75), there is no bug associated with it, and it has received only trivial changes since then (e.g. blanket spelling mistake fixes). We have a lot more tests these days than we had back then.
Created attachment 8503858 [details] [diff] [review] Remove tools/httptester/, which is ancient and unused Ted, I couldn't find anyone associated with this code who still works on the project. So as someone who has been a Mozillian for a long time and knows a lot about testing stuff, I'm giving the review to you. Thanks. 36 files changed, 745 deletions(-)
