    Experience running on IE 5.5 and IE 6.0

    We're having a discussion here about the risk/reward of developing and running our automation on IE 5.5 and IE 6.0. I'll start by saying it is our choice, it's not a decision the is being forced one way or the other by upper management. It's just an issue of reliabilty and mantainability (risk of working on both) vs ease of development and extra testing (reward of working on both). I was wondering what other's experiences are with the ability to develop a test on either 5.5 or 6.0 and then have it run without change on the other browser version.

    Re: Experience running on IE 5.5 and IE 6.0

    We developed scripts on:
    Windows 2000 IE 5.5

    We've ran them on:
    Windows 2000 IE 5.5
    Windows 2000 IE 6.0
    Windows XP IE 6.0

    Scripts were pretty big and used many features of ST 5.5.3 (note, that not 6.0), and were ran without any modifications, but with IE 5.0 (not 5.5!) were serious trubles on a few machines, but not on all with drop-downs

    That seems to be about what they experienced here before. Big troubles with IE 5.0 vs 5.5, so the decision was made to stick with just one browser, but i've found IE 5.5 and 6.0 to both work with the same script.

    We're using Silk 6.0.0.1 [5].

    We haven't noticed much difference between IE5.5 and 6 as far as SilkTest is concerned.

    Re: Experience running on IE 5.5 and IE 6.0

    Our scripts are running the scripts good in IE 5.0, IE 5.5 and IE 6.0. But in these browsers, we need to come up with additonal java script pop ups which may show up in IE 6.0.
    Apart from that the scripts running fine.

    Thanks for the input. We are going to play it safe and stick with IE 5.5 only for now. Probably move to IE 6.0 exclusively in another 6 months.
