Until now, we have relied on our eagle-eyed Quality Assurance Police to prod, poke, push and pull our sites ad nauseum in search of these failures.
This is time consuming and error prone, even for our über talented QAs. So, being the geeks we truly are, we thought we’d get a computer to do the leg-work.
Consequently I have been working on a little hocus-pocus to bewitch web browsers into thinking a real person is using the site. The result is pretty entertaining: a browser dancing away, apparently all by itself! It also uncovers any errors in the code - but that is less fun.
I had to move the browser so you could see it, but other than that it's all magic!
