Subject Re: Deprecate HTML Link Parser and HTTP URL Re-writing Modifier
Date Wed, 25 Jan 2017 17:28:59 GMT

HTML Link Parser element is probably rarely used and can be deprecated imho

HTTP URL Re-writing element can be useful for testing webapp without 
cookie manager but probably for a very old app of the time when the 
cookie is appeared into the browsers... Probably it's can be deprecated too.
