As a standard for HTTP/1.1 the browser can use 2 simultaneous connections to the server to do its requests. Currently a single threads seems to use just only one connections to the server. To make testing more realistic a thread / user should be able to use 2 simultaneous connections to retrieve objects. For the latest versions of Firefox it is even using up to 6 connections simultaneously. To make tests realistic, this woould definitly be a must. Especially for HTTPS it is more realistic because it involves SSL handshakes. Also many webservers are configured to hold a maximum of X connections, and when simultaneous connetions are used you would hit this twice as fast as when testing with only 1 connection (as JMeter does now).

We consider this feature very important, e.g. AJAX/GWT pages that execute commands in parralel cannot be now precisely simulated with JMeter. Commands that usually occur in conflicting times, JMeter executes sequentially.
