Announcing Sauce Support for Windows 8 and IE 10

Posted Oct 16th, 2012

Here at Sauce, we love testing. We love it so much that we made a testing service to run tests, then wrote hundreds of tests to test it (yes, that's a mouthful). But if there's one thing we love nearly as much as testing, it's watching the number of Sauce-supported OS/Browsers go up.

So, this is an exciting day for us! We've ratcheted up our supported Windows versions - from Windows 7 to 8, and from Internet Explorer 9 to 10 - so you can do even more testing across the latest platforms. To give them a whirl today, enter these parameters in your script:

DesiredCapabilities caps = DesiredCapabilities.internetExplorer();
caps.setCapability("platform", "Windows 2012");
caps.setCapability("version", "10");

(For other browser/OS options, find your code here!)

As you may know, Windows 8 has not officially been released yet - that's slated for October 26th. But the pre-release version is available, and in keeping with our commitment to supporting new browser versions on the day they're announced (or even before), we wanted you to have access to it as soon as possible. We're still working out some of the kinks, such as making these compatible with our standard support for self-signed certificates. If you're running Sauce Connect, wait for our signal before hitting any HTTPS sites. Otherwise, we hope you'll give it a try in either our automated or manual testing service. And if you have any feedback or issues, please let us know. Happy testing!
