The Importance of Live Testing

Live testing is crucial for just about anyone developing a web page. However, it’s getting more and more complicated every year. With so many different browsers, devices and resolutions to run through, you will potentially need to try out thousands of different combinations if you want to be confident of the finished product. That’s where browser emulators come in. Comparium is a leading browser emulator that lets you run your pages in multiple different browsers, including Microsoft Edge, as well as plenty of other options. Live testing lets you track the same page in multiple different browser emulators, at the same time. Previously, this kind of quality assurance required a large team, comparing screenshots after running through various pages. Live testing lets you carry out testing in different specifications at once, simplifying the job and cutting down the time needed.
The old way of testing

Ensuring full functionality requires extensive manual testing.

  • Large testing team.
  • Farm devices for each different combination.
  • Waste time and effort running different virtual machines.
  • High costs.
The new way of testing

Use Comparium to test hundreds of combinations of browsers, OS and resolutions.

  • Carry out testing in a fraction of the time you’d otherwise need.
  • Streamline your QA processes.
  • More detailed, effective testing and analysis.
  • Massively reduce testing costs.
