Behavior modifier options for the engine
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

iter=NUMBER
 - set Methanol how many times have to load each page
 - default value: 10

skipped=NUMBER
 - set the number of dropped (warm up) iterations, these iterations won't be counted in results
 - notice: the first run will fill caches with e.g. images, css, js
 - default value: 2

syncStart=1/0
 - 1 = true, 0 = false
 - provide a synchronized start for two or more simultaneously started Methanols
 - notice: useful for benchmarking more simultaneously running Methanol in separate processes or in
   separate browser-tabs, browser-windows
 - default value: 0

reportToUrl=1/0
 - 1 = true, 0 = false
 - report results into the url bar
 - shows the results when Methanol finished and redirects the page to results.html and fill the
   url bar with the results after results.html
 - default value: 0

Usage example:

 - fire.html?iter=6&skipped=1&synchStart=0&reportToUrl=1


Suggested usage with QtWebKit's QtTestBrowser or MiniBrowser
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Start the testbrowser with -print-loaded-urls option, when Methanol finished the running the
results will be printed to the shell's standard output, so you can parse it for further utilization and
automatization purposes.
