Testing with IE's "Browser Mode" (different versions of IE)
Has anyone used the different browser modes in Internet Explorer to run tests?
(Open IE, hit F12, the developer window opens, click Browser Mode, and select a previous version of Internet Explorer)
I am wondering if this gives accurate results of the different IE releases (IE 8 and previous)
And I am wondering if this is worth attempting to incorporate into projects.
Yes, i have used the developer tools (mostly the network capture) many a times, in order to measure response times for my aut. it does work brilliantly, and it makes for good proof when logging defects on the performance/response time of your app - and this is when usually dev teams get back to you and tell you that your computer is too slow, not the app...
this is only available from IE 9 upwards, so not sure about what your question around 8 and <?
this is actually a quick solution for measuring the network and app response times, and it doesn't require the tester to set up PC+SiS or any other perf monitors.
hope that answers your question.
Thank you for your insight!
