Sauce Labs Inc., a well-known provider of error reporting and continuous testing solutions, recently announced the addition of Sauce Visual to its robust testing platform. This new feature provides native visual regression capabilities, which can help QA teams and software engineers catch more bugs with less code, simplify test creation and maintenance, and run visual and functional tests in parallel. In lab tests, Sauce Visual outperformed competing solutions by delivering 1.5X more visual proofs (snapshots) per minute, at a fraction of the price.
About Sauce Labs
Sauce Labs is the top testing platform. More than 100,000 users rely on Sauce Labs to assist them in providing the best software experiences as soon as possible. With more than ten years of experience and strong relationships with the open-source Selenium and Appium communities, It supports teams in testing on a wide range of devices, browsers, and operating systems.
“The visual design process is complex. Multiple teams contribute to the look and feel of a page, making it difficult to detect and resolve quality issues,” said Marcus Merrell, Vice President of Technology Strategy. ”Most visual testing tools double the time it takes to execute a test suite, straining internal resources, while separate contracts, UIs, and credentials create unnecessary friction. Sauce Visual solves these problems by integrating visual testing seamlessly into the world’s most robust test infrastructure.”
Sauce Visual: Automated Visual Testing
With Sauce Visual, teams can be confident that they will detect both deliberate and inadvertent UI changes because the visual analysis of hundreds of pages is automatically performed. Any changes made to a page’s visual presentation are instantly pointed out, highlighting any discrepancies in the visual presentation and drawing attention to accidental modifications that human testing could have overlooked. One line of code can be used to execute these checks, allowing for the completion of both functional and visual testing on a single platform.
“Digital experiences matter. Our research demonstrates that only 59% of consumers believe it’s possible to have a bad digital experience and still get a good product. Software quality is too important to be an afterthought; it’s critical that developers and designers alike have the right tools in their toolbox,” said Dave Rhodes, CEO of Sauce Labs. “Visual testing is an important differentiator for companies driven to create enjoyable digital experiences. Designers deserve to have resources that streamline the tedious manual process of visual design testing, and we’re tackling this challenge head on with Sauce Visual.”
Sauce Visual is compatible with any CI/CD processes and utilises the same native tools as the other products in the Sauce series. Sauce Visual will work with Selenium, Cypress, WebDriverIO, Appium (web), Java/TestNG, and Java/JUnit at launch. Playwright, Puppeteer, TestCafe, Espresso, and XCUITest support is on the way.
