TestingBot provides a cloud of browsers to run Automated, Live and Visual browser testing.
TestLab: customize e-mail alert & receive recover alerts
Today we've updated our TestLab, where you can upload your Selenium IDE tests and schedule test-runs, with 2 new features.
The first new feature is an optional custom error message. Before, TestingBot sent the error message received from Selenium to your e-mail or phone (SMS text message). Now, you can specify a custom error message for your alerts and use variables like %test_name% or %browser%, which will then be sent to your e-mail or phone.
The second new feature is an optional recover notification. When enabling this, you'll get notified through e-mail or SMS that a previous failed test is now successful.
Run your Selenium IDE/RC tests on Android and iOS
We've upgraded our TestLab to enable running your Selenium IDE/RC tests on mobile emulators, including various flavors of Android and iPhone/iPad.
Just like before, you upload a test or a suite created with Selenium IDE, select the browsers (or mobile devices) you want the test to run on, specify error/report settings and click run.
Keeping our Selenium VMs up to date
At TestingBot we make sure that all VMs running in our network are patched with the latest updates.
We make sure to update our Windows Virtual Machines as soon as possible after Patch Tuesday, when Microsoft releases new Windows updates.
This means our Windows VMs always have the latest security updates from Microsoft.
How we make our interactive testing super fast
At TestingBot, we like our users to profit from fast access to our VMs.
In our manual testing area, we provide a way to pick an Operating System, Browser and browser version.
As soon as you picked a combination you'd like to use, we spin up a Virtual Machine, which is a virtual computer in our cloud system. This computer is fresh, not used by anyone before you and will not be used by anyone after you. As soon as you close the manual test session, the computer and all its data is destroyed.
2014 for TestingBot
As we're approaching the end of 2014, we like to list a few goals TestingBot achieved this year:
- The number of paying customers increased by 43% in 2014.
- We improved our manual testing software: less latencies, higher responsiveness and better quality when controlling one of our browsers with your mouse.
Run tests against any Selenium version
Our Selenium grid now supports running your Selenium tests with an older version of Selenium.
By default, we always run your tests on the most recent version of Selenium, to ensure maximum performance and stability.
Some customers however like to run their tests on an older version of Selenium, this is now possible by specifying the desired Selenium version in the desired capabilities option.
