[webkit-dev] Top 100 sites browsing tests proprosal

I've been thinking about this for some time now, but only a recent bug
I'm constantly hitting these days
(https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=76574) triggered this email
[1]. What I would like to propose here is to have a battery of tests
that would check that the most visited sites (let's say the top 100 for
example) are correctly loaded by WebKit. By correctly loaded, I don't
mean layout or ref tests, they'll just check that the page poad ends
without any assertion.

I know that trunk is for raw development but having >25k layout tests
passing is nothing if a so popular site as Wikipedia triggers an
assertion while being loaded. The obvious answer is "ok so we need more
tests", we all agree on that, but having like "real-word" permanent
tests would not harm I guess (and probably help defining more layout tests).

I haven't took a detailed look at them, but maybe these main sites
browsing tests could be part of the perf tests rniwa and others recently

What do you think?


[1] note that I am not blaming anyone in particular, we all add bugs,
just that this one finally flipped the switch :)
