    Using same scripts for different browsers

    Hi,
    Wanted to check if anyone has the experience of using same Silk scripts to test web applications running in different browsers (IE, Netscape, AOL). If feasible how much effort is it to customize to respective browsers ?

    Re: Using same scripts for different browsers

    On a basic web site, then yes, I have used the same script with multiple browsers without much work.

    However, with detailed web applications, I have found that the overhead and maintences and workarounds needed to even get the same script running in IE and Netscape is too costly to even attempt. You can do it, but from my experience, the benifit is not worth the extra work.

    I now do everything with IE DOM, since that is the most reliable method. I tried using the Netscape DOM with the same script, but that didn't work since I have NN 6.2 and SilkTest DOM only works with the "buggy" NN 6.0.

    If you are not using DOM, then the migration is easier. However, you will most likely find that some workarounds are needed to get the script working in another browser.
