Sponsored by Mozilla and Powered by Sauce Labs, the New Cross-Browser Testing Tutorial Program Is Designed To Help Developers Make The Web Work for Everyone

SAN FRANCISCO – Dec. 15, 2016 – Sauce Labs, Inc., provider of the world’s largest cloud-based platform for automated testing of web and mobile applications, today announced a new partnership with Mozilla to educate front-end developers on the importance of cross-browser testing. By launching the new Cross-Browser Testing Tutorial, Sauce Labs and Mozilla are working to help fulfill the promise of a healthy web, where anyone can access content using any browser on any device.

"Cross-browser testing is essential to ensuring that companies are providing the optimal experience for their desktop and mobile web visitors," said Lubos Parobek, vice president of product, Sauce Labs. "That is why Sauce Labs and Mozilla have come together to provide developers access to our automated testing platform, as well as some exceptional learning resources from Mozilla - to help them hone their craft, contribute to a healthier web, and to ultimately see that automated cross-browser testing is not that hard to do."

Even today, millions of websites have compatibility problems on one or more of the major browsers, leading to a poor user experience. The Cross-Browser Testing Tutorial is intended to give developers a testing platform and resources to help them learn cross-browser testing and add automated testing to their toolkit. Developers who complete the tutorial will be able to identify and debug issues rendered in different browsers before releasing to users – ensuring that the website will work for all who access it.

"We are focused on making the web a place where everyone can freely access and contribute content regardless of what browser, platform and devices they use. We are always looking for ways to help developers deliver experiences that reach everyone," said Nick Nguyen, vice president of product, Firefox. "We champion the importance of cross-browser compatibility and we are excited to work with Sauce Labs to deliver an easy way for web developers to test their code in hundreds of browser and platform combinations."

Enrollment for the Cross-Browser Testing Boot Camp is open now, via a free no-commitment 30-day trial. To learn more and register go to : https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/developer/browsertest/
