BugBug - Automated Web Testing Tool

Releasing a website or a web app requires a lot of work. Coding, testing, debugging, etc., are effort-intensive and time-consuming processes. Yet, it happens that websites throw up errors after it has been released for public use. This affects the user experience and might reduce the credibility of the organization. 

Testing a website or a web app is a lengthy process. Different types of testing methods are used based on the nature and purpose of the website/ app. Even though there are automated tools for testing, the tools have to be used by qualified testers. Coding plays a major role in the entire process. 

What if you can test a website or app without coding? What if there’s an easy tool that automates testing? 

BugBug is a browser extension tool that runs local, cloud, and parallel tests to debug a website or web application. The software helps people with no coding experience to test the website before it is live and can be accessed by customers. 

In short, BugBug is end-to-end testing software that requires no coding skills to test a website and identify the glitches on time. It is easy to use and highly efficient.
