Do you do exploratory testing?

Last updated by Brady Stroud [SSW] about 1 month ago.See history

Use Microsoft's Test & Feedback extension to perform exploratory tests on web apps directly from the browser.

Capture screenshots (and even videos), annotate them and submit bugs into Azure DevOps as you explore your web app - all directly from the Chrome browser (Edge and Firefox are also supported).

Test on any platform (Windows, Mac or Linux) on different devices - without the need for pre-defined test cases or test steps.
