BrowserSwarm is powered on the backend by Sauce Labs and allows developers and QA engineers to automatically test web and mobile apps across 150+ browser / OS combinations, including iOS, Android and Mac OS X. After tests are run, users will have a report that includes screenshots, video and logs to inform them of what needs to be fixed for each browser, including modern and older versions of those.
"The web continues to evolve at a remarkable pace, with technologies like WebGL and touch-based input becoming part of web standards," said Justin Garrett, senior product marketing manager for Internet Explorer. "With more users browsing the web on an increasing range of devices and browsers, developers have their hands full with making sure their websites are compatible for everyone. BrowserSwarm is our most recent partnership, along with the free virtual machines and scanning tools on modern.ie, to help developers spend less time testing and more time innovating for the web."
appendTo, which provides frontend software development and developer training, will provide testing solution delivery and consulting services to developers using BrowserSwarm.
"BrowserSwarm is an exciting project for appendTo," said Mike Hostetler, founder and CEO of appendTo. "The ability to directly address testing -- an underrated but critical piece of the puzzle to building modern web applications -- has far reaching implications. BrowserSwarm makes industry-leading testing available to the widest group of developers possible. It will help organizations reduce the risk of relying on these important frameworks for their the company's standards and critical projects."
