Is it possible to test HTTP/2 with our current Browser Agents?

Is there a workaround? Can we instruct the private peer to use a specific browser?

Solution

As of the May 2016 release of the Browser Agents, HTTP/2 is supported by the Firefox Agent and Chrome Agent.

The IE Agent does not currently support HTTP/2.

    Internet Explorer supports HTTP/2 in version 11, but only for Windows 10. We are running our backbone nodes on Server 2008.
    Firefox supports HTTP/2 which has been enabled since version 36 and we are FF38.
    Chrome supported HTTP/2 with the release of Chrome 40, and current BA version Chrome 46.

    So based on current browser agent versions, we support h2 on FF and CH agents but not IE11 agent.
