the Canoo Company will surely be happy to know that you're a fan of them ;-)

Concerning Webtest, except Calypso, nothing has been presented here to offer
a kind of IDE. 

Until now 4 recorders have been presented in the mailing list (I hope beeing
able to present a new one next week) but remember that recording has to be
used carefully: if you don't refactor your tests to reuse common parts, you
will get a high duplication and the maintenance will be expensive.

Tests can be started from the command line or from your prefered IDE.
Perhaps could it be a way for your product manager depending on what you
await from him.

Personally I don't use it I don't think that this the right direction for a
"Webtest IDE".
