Visual Testing Increases Confidence

If you are just starting with end-to-end test automation or if you have already tried other approaches and struggled, you came to the right place. If your testing does not work reliable you are missing the most important KPI for your confidence.

Visual Testing works as a human

Imagine that you test your software exactly the way your customers use it. No additional layer to maintain, no broken links, no additional maintenance. This is exactly what Visual Testing does. scans you screen for defined elements and interacts with those elements exactly the way a human would.

The way Visual Testing is working with you application:
Get what is currently displayed then either click/touch or enter text. That is covering 99% of all typical interactions your customer has with your application.

Without the limitations of a human

All that without the typical limitation like getting tired, getting used to a problem and just accepting its existence, being distracted. All with a 99% decrease in costs compared to a human.

But with all benefits

On top, Visual Testing extends functional tests with implicit tests, i.e. test that come for free. calls this feature Human Factor: Imagine a tester who executes the same test case 10x times over the development time of an email application. On the 6th execution the functionality of sending an email still works as expected but your tester notices that there is a new line added to the sent email every time. While this was not part of the test case based on his previous knowledge, he noticed a subtle change. It turns out it found a new bug.

This is exactly what the Human Factor does. It keeps track on how your application looked to the customers and checks if there are unexpected differences. Try this with your current pure functional test automation.
