Yes, but .... it will be very basic and definitely not be there to compete with widely available "web site testing". It will likely be very restrictive on the amount of data it fetches and the number of probes. RIPE Atlas is designed as a network level measurement tool and not an application tester. We are also somewhat concerned about consequences for our probe hosts. Consider what can happen if an atlas user causes your probe to access content that is considered inappropriate or even illegal where you live and run your probe. Considering this, it would be very useful to know what it is that you want to achieve and have a discussion on what RIPE Atlas should do. Daniel
