New Solution Automatically Tests Entire Mobile Web Sites on Smartphones

Gomez, a Web application experience management company, has introduced a solution that can automatically test how entire mobile Web sites render on the iPhone, Google Android, BlackBerry (News - Alert), Windows Mobile 6.1 and 5-based smartphones.


Touted as the industry’s first, the service is part of the company’s “One Web” performance testing and monitoring capabilities that help developers and IT operations teams find, diagnose and fix application performance issues whether they are mobile-specific, Web-specific or both.
Gomez's cross-browser and device testing solution is completely automated, self-service and on-demand. According to company officials, with this solution, mobile developers can save time and money as they are able to visually test complete mobile Web sites significantly faster than traditional manual testing processes.
Imad Mouline, chief technology officer at Gomez, said that the company’s cross-mobile Web browser testing transforms a process that was once manual and cumbersome to one that is speedy and cost-efficient.
The service allows users to enter a starting URL and provides the option to select a smartphone to test. Once done, officials said that the service crawls through the entire mobile Web site and returns volumes of screen captures showing how each Web page appears on each smartphone selected.
Automating the process allows developers to “swiftly” find and correct content rendering issues like missing or misplaced graphics, buttons and text, prior to launch. In addition, officials said that it also reduces the need for in-house testing labs.
In addition to visually testing mobile Web sites, Gomez’s cross-browser and device testing solution also checks how traditional Web applications appear and function in more than 500 combinations of browsers, operating systems and screen sizes, according to officials.
