Performance engineers frequently need to test sites outside of those offered by automation (i.e the tp6 pages).
(For example, it can be useful to test developer-written sites which stress specific components of the runtime).

This bug is to provide a mechanism to 'push to try' browsertime jobs with a user-specified site (or list of lists), that can be run and compared against other runs.

I assume those would normally be live sites. As such bug 1613444 would be required before anything can be done here.

Yes, I think that would be the most common use case. Maybe someday support for recording an arbitrary site for replay could be added.

An ideal solution would be to allow a URL to be passed with pushing to try. Alternatively, it should already be possible to do this by adding test configurations and using live sites. It's not elegant, but we could potentially resolve this by documenting how to do this.

This came up recently when working with the privacy team on Cookie Banner Handling.
We have a long list of sites that we'd like to compare (live), a little over 200 sites.
