Did you hear about our Summer Blockbuster? SmartBear has acquired Bitbar, expanding our breadth of Native Mobile App testing innovation. Bitbar is an established best-in-class product, and is a perfect complement to CrossBrowserTesting—so welcome to the family, Bitbar! Though we’ll pass on the bunk beds and the boat crashing.
Full-Page Screenshot Options
A few months back, we updated our screenshots to use CSS translate instead of our scroll and stitch method. However, CSS translate does not work with lazy-loading content. Lazy-loading content requires a scroll to trigger new content to load. If you are experiencing your screenshots not scrolling and not loading content, use our Standard Scroll Method under the Advanced Options.
Archiving Test Results
We had some customers reach out about archiving test results. We have added two new options for archiving automated tests. You can now archive individual results without navigating away from all the results, and you can archive an entire build’s tests.
New Browsers and Operating Systems
We released Firefox 68, Chrome 76, and Opera 62 on OSX. We also released the Samsung Galaxy S9s with 4 different browsers.
Bug of the Month
A user with an automated test was trying to launch Twitter links and they were getting inconsistent test results. The expectations was that it would launch in-browser but some launched on the Twitter desktop app. We didn’t install Twitter on our desktops, so we thought we had a cleaning issue.
We finally determined that last April, Microsoft was experimenting with auto-installing the Twitter app and associating it with twitter.com. Not all of our machines had it, as we had a variety of Windows 10 machines acquired at different times. This caused our user to have flaky tests but we were able to fix our machines to never launch the Twitter app, and uninstall the app whenever we found it.
