10 Best FREE Defect Tracking Tools

A while ago, I had populated a list of defect tracking tools, but not exclusively free defect tracking tools, and the other is rather big with a mix of paid and free defect tools.

To keep it simple and for most novice and small teams looking for free tools, I have created a list of the best free defect tool on the Internet.

Take a look and see what you think. Take these websites for a spin and see if they can be helpful for your particular process. As part of the test strategy and plan, finding the right tool for the project you are involved in is a challenge; you need to test and trial as much as you can until you find the right one for the job.

Let me know if you know of any other free tools, and I’ll add them here in future revisions.
