After some more optimisations in our code and infrastructure we've now reached the point where the average simple test takes 9 seconds.
Compared with competitors, we're 2 to 3 times faster in running your test.
This means that you can run more tests in less time at testingbot.com
Here are some benchmarks with a simple test that starts an Internet Explorer browser (7) and verifies the title of google.
0.0496 tests/s, 0.0496 assertions/s. real 0m22.299s user 0m2.064s sys 0m0.112s
0.12 tests/s, 0.12 assertions/s real 0m8.833s user 0m0.212s sys 0m0.028s
We'll be experimenting with a quick-launch feature soon where we'll speed up the startup of a browser (the most time-consuming event during testing).
