Top 5 Software Quality eBooks of 2013 (Free for Download)
Test and Monitor | Posted Dezember 17, 2013

This is the time of the year that companies feel inclined to send out  special holiday deals and seasonal greetings meant to make you feel all warm inside. As nice as that may be, these holiday messages don't usually provide you with anything of value.

Rather than spend time trying to show off our holiday cheer we have, we decided it made more sense to just give out five of our top eBooks from 2013 for free. As in, completely free. No cost. No email address. No name. No gimmick. We truly just want to allow you to download these eBooks to thank you for visiting our blog, and the only reason you would need to provide us with any information is if you decided to download one of our complimentary trials.

Whether you're a functional tester, a sysadmin, a developer, or some far-out fusion of the three, I hope you're able to find some valuable information in the resources listed below.


A Step-by-Step Guide to Cross-Browser Testing

Do you test your web applications in multiple browsers? If you do, you know that automation of tests for different browsers can be annoyingly difficult, especially with modern Web 2.0 applications.

Modern test automation tools provide built-in support for cross-browser testing that allows tests created for one browser to be played back in other supported browsers  including IE 10, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. . Additionally, distributed testing capabilities allow you to run cross-browser tests against different browsers on multiple machines at the same time. Share this.
