3 Chrome Extensions for Software Testing – Exploratory Testing

Ok, exploratory testing. What would you do to go through it learning, exploring and recording any evidence of it?

Here are some of the chrome extensions I use and I find them really useful.

Get them and see how useful they can be.

#1. Bug Magnet – Bug Magnet chrome extension is a huge time-saver during exploratory testing. Right-click on any field in the web application to bring up a context menu with pre-defined values for emails, names, phone numbers, postcodes etc. Select the value you need and it fills in the field you are in on the web page. So, next time you plan exploratory testing, you don’t have to make up any test values for field value testing – Bug Magnet does it for you. Give it a try, and you will use it every day.

#2. Fake Filler – Fake Filler is THE form filler to fill all input fields on a page with randomly generated fake data. This productivity-boosting extension is a must for developers and testers who work with forms as it eliminates the need for manually entering values in fields.
