User Conditions Importance in Web App Testing

Usually when talking about Web testing, QA teams tend to stick with functional, layout and performance testing. In this blog we would highlight the importance of testing for web apps from the end-user perspective and assuring that the experience is also covered in the test plans.

In today’s competitive landscape many web app sites are exposed to a lot of interrupts whether from web add-ons or in the majority of cases adware popups which often interrupt the user flows within the web page or even cover existing and important content from your web page.

In such cases as mentioned above, Dev and Test team need to asses the impact of such pop ups from upper bar security and other add-ons interruptions together with larger ad pop ups covering your web content – as seen above, sometime even when blocking the ads would not solve the problems since the ad vendor will sense that they are on and will pop a different screen.

As a supporting fact to the pain ads are adding to web site owners, we see reports of more than 5.5 millions downloads of Adblock plus tool for FireFox browser just over the last 30 days.

As a quick tip in this blog – enhance your web test plan beyond functionality and cover the cases of environment conditions.
