A Comprehensive Guide to Responsive Testing A Comprehensive Guide to Responsive Testing

Responsive testing ensures websites look and function well across devices by testing layout, functionality, and performance on various screen sizes and browsers. It's crucial for consistent user experience, navigation, image display, and website robustness. Testing methods include browser developer tools, real devices, usability testing, and performance testing. Common challenges include outdated browsers, device-specific behaviors, and network speeds. AI, Machine Learning, and Real User Monitoring are emerging trends in responsive testing.

Don’t Let Load Testing Lead You Astray Don’t Let Load Testing Lead You Astray

While traditional, "closed system" models might seem familiar, they miss the unpredictable nature of real user arrivals. This article highlights how open system models, which mimic real-world user behavior, expose performance bottlenecks at high load that closed models can't catch. Remember, arrival rates, not virtual user counts, are the key to unlocking accurate load testing results.

AI/ML Testing and Your Test Future (Part 2) AI/ML Testing and Your Test Future (Part 2)

AI, AI, AI—it is everywhere. We all read this in the news, see it in politics, in our web traffic, and now it’s coming to our tools. Interestingly, testing has been identified as one of the most essential areas for AI as well as for the safety of the public. This article considers references to start you on your AI test journey, "classic AI" problem areas, and identifies possible concepts to use when testing AI. As usual, it comes down to a willingness to learn new things or apply historical ideas to advance your test career.
