IE 8 Behind the Scenes: Testing IE

Internet Explorer, like all applications released by Microsoft and other software companies, undergoes immense amounts of rigorous testing before being released in the wild. Given the nature of what IE does (compute, calculate, and render random HTML strings into a coherent pixel mesh that adheres, as best as possible, to some set of standards, parse and execute random javascript, host and run COM objects in form of add-ons, etc) the testing matrix is enormous. How complex is the testing process for IE? Well, let's find out, shall we?

Here, we meet three people who absolutely know how much of a challenge it is to test IE and ensure overall quality of any given release: Test Manager Jason Upton, Software Developer in Test Jim Moore, and Test Lead Kris Krueger.

Tune in. It's great to hear from the testing perspective. Testing an internet facing application like Internet Explorer and ensuring a high quality product leaves the building is quite a daunting and, from the outside world's perspective, thankless task.

Theres also a Testing Center for running IE Standards Tests yourself

Check to see if you have the "Blocked Popup" yellow bar just under the tabs area. This video needs the Media Player plugin to work and you may need to allow the popup and run the ActiveX control (it's safe)
