  • Record sessions using inbuilt exploratory testing capabilities that allow testers to capture screenshots of any content without ever leaving your browser window. Communicate feedback clearly with easy-to-use annotation tools, audio recordings, auto capture details of environment and ensure nothing slips through the cracks while raising bugs. Create test cases directly from sessions without taking efforts to author them manually.
