Reality View XF Helps Developers Ensure that Web Applications Display and Perform Correctly on the Newest Browsers from Google and Microsoft
Lexington, Massachusetts, September 4, 2008 – Gomez, Inc., a leading provider of web application experience management services, today announced the availability of cross-browser testing for Google�s new browser, Chrome, and Microsoft�s Internet Explorer (IE) 8 beta 2.
“The recent proliferation of web browser platforms has put many Internet application providers in an unenviable position,” said Daniel Golding, vice president and research director at Tier1 Research. “In addition to three different versions of Internet Explorer, two versions of Firefox, and Apple�s Safari, now developers must test against yet another platform – Google�s Chrome. That both Chrome and IE8 are in beta – subject to rapid change – makes matters worse. Web application developers are in dire need of powerful, web-based software quality assurance capabilities.”
Using Gomez�s Reality View XF service, developers can now visualize how new and existing web applications will appear and perform when rendered in the Chrome and IE 8 beta browsers. A self-service solution, Reality View XF speedily delivers screen captures of how web pages render and load in over 500 combinations of browsers, operating systems and devices. It is best used during both application development and deployment to assure quality web experiences for all users, no matter their browser choice.
“A web application is no longer what a developer builds; it�s what the user sees and experiences,” said Imad Mouline, Gomez�s CTO. “End-users expect rich, high-quality web experiences, whatever browser or operating system they choose to use. Businesses cannot afford to disenfranchise their customers should they choose to use Chrome or IE 8 as their browser.”
Gomez, Inc. is a leading provider of web application experience management services, which businesses use to test their web applications while in development and to monitor their web applications after deployment. More than 2,000 customers use Gomez�s on-demand services to improve the quality of the web experience in order to increase their revenue from web applications, reduce their operating costs, and extend their brand reputations.
