Greetings, fellow testers. I was asked an interesting question last night and thought I'd share it with you
As you've seen in recent blog posts and videos, our upcoming release will allow you to record your tests using multiple browsers. That lead one user to wonder if if it was necessary to do so — "If I want to run a test in each of the browsers, will I need to record the same test in each of those browsers?"
Fortunately, there's no such need. Any test you record can be played back using any browser; there's no tie between the browser you used to record and the one(s) used to execute the test.
The only situation I can think of that would cause you to need to record with a specific browser is if your appliation behaves differently. Hopefully, with today's modern browsers that's more rare than it has been in past years. If that is the case, you can also use specific steps to deal with differences:
If you haven't looked at Test Studio 2013 R1 Beta yet, I urge you to do so and let us know your thoughts.
