Chrome and Firefox beta/dev cross browser testing

This week we've been adding many more browser versions to our list of browsers you can pick from.


You can now instantly launch a Chrome browser as old as version 35 on our website and use it with your mouse and keyboard. Or use it in your Selenium IDE/Selenium Builder/Webdriver test to automatically test your website. We've added Chrome versions 35 - 45 for all Mac (Yosemite/Mavericks), Linux and Windows (XP, 7, 8, 10) platforms.

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.
