Because 99%+ of Websites (html, etc. pages) are viewed from a Browser the 'Browser-Based Website Testing' approach is recommended as the best way of testing a Website. This approach allows the Tester to view (and examine) a website exactly as a User will view it. The User is the essential ingredient in the whole Website/Viewer algorithm. Without the user, the Website has no useful purpose - Full Stop! Other approaches offer only partial solutions to the Website Testing problem. The Browser-based approach offers a full solution. This talk will promote 'Browser-based' technology and offer demonstrations of its practical application.
