Hey testers! We hope you are all safe and healthy as we share this exciting product update. We’ve worked hard last couple weeks to incorporate a few invaluable customer suggestions into the product and I am about to quickly share them with you. Here we go!

This product update is going to be all about our cloud Selenium Grid. Which now allows you to perform:

Now Test Browser Extensions For Mozilla Firefox & Microsoft Edge Browsers As Well

Till now, you were only able to test browser extensions on Google Chrome using our cloud Selenium Grid. Now, you could also test browser extensions for Mozilla Firefox & Microsoft Edge browsers.

Note: Browser extensions support for Mozilla Firefox & Microsoft Edge browsers is in beta stage right now. We are gathering some amazing feedback and are working to incorporate them before we get it out of beta testing. If you want to perform automated browser testing for your browser extensions on Firefox & Edge then give us a shout.

For Microsoft Edge browsers., you could test extensions on Chromium-based Edge Browser versions.

Test your browser extensions now and let us know how it went for you. 🙂

Automated Browser Testing On Microsoft Edge 83 & 84 Beta

Earlier, we introduced the latest Microsoft Edge browser version in our live interactive testing. Now, they are available on our Selenium Grid as well. You can find these browser versions in our Selenium Desired Capability Generator.

Easily Debug Selenium Scripts With Live Interaction On High Sierra

Debugging could be an annoying task but we do our best to make it more convenient for you. Keeping that in mind, we have come up with a feature that lets you perform live interaction debugging while running your Selenium scripts.

Using this feature, you will be able to pause the virtual machine that is running your Selenium script and you can then break the sessions for debugging your test scripts from the automation logs itself.

This feature is under beta testing which is why it is only present in macOS High Sierra for now. We are working to make this better for you and should be live with this feature on other operating systems shortly.

Improved UI For Automation Dashboard

Thanks to our awesome users, we were able to improve our Automation dashboard to offer better insights for Selenium testing scripts.

Bye Bye Pagination, Hello Infinite Scroll

Earlier in our timeline view, we used to offer pagination where you had to go to previous pages for accessing older test builds. Not anymore! Now, you can scroll down the timeline infinitely till you find the previous builds you were looking for.
