Gomez Adds Cross-Browser Testing for New Google Chrome

Reality View XF Helps Developers Ensure that Web Applications Display and Perform Correctly on the Newest Browser from Google

Gomez announced the availability of cross-browser testing for Google’s new browser, Chrome, and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) 8 beta 2.

"The recent proliferation of web browser platforms has put many Internet application providers in an unenviable position,” said Daniel Golding, vice president and research director at Tier1 Research. “In addition to three different versions of Internet Explorer, two versions of Firefox, and Apple's Safari, now developers must test against yet another platform - Google's Chrome. That both Chrome and IE8 are in beta - subject to rapid change - makes matters worse. Web application developers are in dire need of powerful, web- based software quality assurance capabilities."

Using Gomez’s Reality View XF service, developers can now visualize how new and existing web applications will appear and perform when rendered in the Chrome and IE 8 beta browsers. A self-service solution, Reality View XF speedily delivers screen captures of how web pages render and load in over 500 combinations of browsers, operating systems and devices. It is best used during both application development and deployment to assure quality web experiences for all users, no matter their browser choice.

“A web application is no longer what a developer builds; it’s what the user sees and experiences,” said Imad Mouline, Gomez’s CTO. “End-users expect rich, high-quality web experiences, whatever browser or operating system they choose to use. Businesses cannot afford to disenfranchise their customers should they chose to use Chrome or IE 8 as their browser.”
