Tools similar to Google BITE - Browser Integrated Testing Environment and aids?



  • I read through How Google Tests Software and was quite curious about the BITE project. The main idea is to reduce friction in manual testing by allowing the following to be done without leaving the browser record bugs directly to a bug database automatically take a screenshot of page where bug is found save the HTML of the page have the steps to generate the bug automatically recorded display bugs already reported on the page (to reduce repeat testing) It doesn't look like this BITE project is still under very active development or widely used which makes me question if it's a good avenue to look into (and spend valuable time going through the set-up proccess). Does anyone have experience with tools that have similar functionality? I am the only person on QA in a small startup mainly focused on a Single Page javascript application. I'm spend most of my time in a SET'ish roll focused on aiding developement and code oriented automated tests. It tends to be spare time of project managers and other not-so-technical people used to quickly find bugs with click-around manual tests. I would find a tool like this very valuable in producing technically useful information in adhoc testing session.



  • Does not fit all the criteria you mention, but I like qTrace, although it does not help you keep track of test cases you can record your actions while you are going through the test cases and then automatically generate a bug report. The program not only records the steps, it also takes screenshots of every step and adds icons that indicate what was done on the page. Additionally you can edit the picture, for example add a red box around a specific area on the screenshot. Another nice feature is it's integration with software like JIRA and other defect tracking software, it however does not automatically figure out if the bug is a duplicate.
