Day 9 Share your three favourite tools for testing ecommerce products
E-commerce applications/sites are web applications or mobile applications too. So, they undergo all the typical test types.
Mobile Application Testing
For today's challenge I have tested various aspects using tools below.
Google Page Speed Insights for Performance Testing
Google Page Speed Insights is a free tool that helps you check the performance of the webpage/App. The biggest benefit of this tool is that it not only provides a detailed description of how fast your site loads but also gives recommendations to make that page faster. Suggestions for optimization are based on general web performance metrics, including resource caching, data upload, and download size.
You have to enter the web address of your store, wait a few seconds, and Google will analyze both mobile and desktop versions of your website. Suggestions are sorted by order of priority from high to medium or low priority. All the results are color-coded, so you are able to know right away whether your website is performing well or not. A score of 90 or above is regarded as fast, 50 to 90 is average, and below 50 is slow.
I checked the performance of the ASDA website with Google page speed insights and I got the result as follows. There are some other free tools available online for performance Testing like Pingdom Tool,GTmetrix Dareboost, WebPageTest, Uptrends, Bottom Line.
Viewport Resizer for testing responsiveness
Some sites don’t render well on smaller screens such as on mobiles and tablets. Because online businesses don’t always have the resources to test on every imaginable device with varying screen size, it can be challenging to come up with a responsive design.
Viewport Resizer is here to make design testing easier. This tool is a browser bookmarklet that can be used to test how your site works on different screen sizes – from HDTV resolutions to mobile screens.
