  • Automated Web Testing: TestCafe 14.1 is Here!

    Check out what's New in the TestCafe 14.1.1 release:

    (Not familiar with TestCafe yet? Read this FAQ)

    Web based Test Code Editor - A new built-in editor allows you to edit your test scripts instantly and online. So not only do you record online, you can now edit online too!

    Enhanced Configuration and Setting Options - We have extended TestCafe's Control Panel and improved the way in which you manage test settings for your web applications.

    Extended API Functions - Two new user actions (navigate and waitFor) have been added to TestCafe's API. There's also a new dialog handling function that closes a dialog shown when a window is about to be unloaded (handleBeforeUnload).

    Improved Architecture and Test Core - Our commitment is to constant and never-ending improvement and so TestCafe 14.1 ships with a significantly improved core engine. The updated architecture improves TestCafe's reliability and addresses a number of usability requests from users such as yourself.

    New Installer for Windows Users - TestCafe v14.1 now ships with a simplified Windows installer for those testing web apps on the Windows operating system.

    And there's more all the great new 14.1 enhancements here!

    5 Reasons to use TestCafe

    Here's 5 reasons why TestCafe is the best web testing tool out there:

    1. Plug-in Free - Other solutions require you to download browser plugins before you can get started. TestCafe let's you get started right away without any plugins.
    2. Visual Test Recorder - A test recorder that works with any browser: locally and on remote machines.
    3. 100% Web Based - Unlike competing products, TestCafe does not pretend to be something it's not. TestCafe is not built to test Windows client apps. TestCafe was engineered from ground up to be a fully optimized web testing tool for web developers and QA engineers.
    4. Easy API - The API is simple. For example, want to call simulate a double-click mouse action? Just call act.dblclick.
    5. Dedicated support - You get 12 months of support from a world class team of developers. All for only $499 per developer license.

    Competition?

    So how does TestCafe stack up against the competition? Take a look at this list below to see why TestCafe is the right choice for your web-based functional testing needs.
