Test multiple URLs with PowerShell Script

If you are a web application administrator or you are building infrastructure, you may need to work with many URLs and test them at the same time.

This script allows you to create URLs with .txt documents or web address parameters you write and test them with Internet Explorer or Chrome. It also allows you to get test results as .log.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need a similar script or if you have any problems.
Do not forget to follow 🙂
