Test your web applications using Litmus

[ 0 By

From today you can check the browser compatibility of any part of your web application within seconds using Litmus.

How does it work? The secret is our new Litmus bookmarklet – a single button you add to your local browser that lets you test inside your web applications (and other sites that need a login).

It’s easier to understand when you see it in action. I’ve recorded a screencast demonstrating how to use it below. It’s eerily simple.

You can install the bookmarklet from within your Litmus account, on the new ‘Extras’ tab. It’s available to all our customers. If you’re not already a customer you can try Litmus for free, including the new bookmarklet feature.

In the interests of full disclosure I should explain how we’re doing this behind the scenes. The bookmarklet copies your session cookie for the site you’re testing, therefore allowing our Litmus browsers to mimic being logged in to your website. Your session information is stored securely on our servers – no-one else can access it. The whole thing works seamlessly.

As always, we’d love to hear your feedback on this new feature!
