I was forwarded a great article on advanced Selenium techniques. Worth a read for anyone who uses Selenium. While the article focuses on ExtJS, the lessons in there can be applied for any website. Building Java (or perl or python, etc)-based components that represent the logical page is a technique I’ve used in the past, but it’s great to see it written up so clearly!
As I tweeted yesterday, today is the day I officially launch my company. BrowserMob opens the doors today by offering the first on-demand, low-cost load testing service that uses real web browsers.
Please read the official announcement for all the details.
When I left Gomez, I didn’t intend to create another testing tools business. My last one, HostedQA (functional Selenium testing in the cloud) was acquired by Gomez a couple years ago.
But as I looked around and got some fresh perspective of the market, I realized that there was still a lot of pain when it came to QA and web applications, especially in the area of proper performance testing.
And thus, BrowserMob was born.
Please check it out and let me know what you think. We’ve got a lot more that we want to do, but we think this initial version is going to radically change the way load testing is done. But what we think is irrelevant. The question is: what do you think?
