The most common website bugs! (Infograph)
I'm pretty new to QA, but I do see that projects, strategies, solutions and pretty much everything can vary drastically from one project to the next. A colleague of mine at QualiTest recently published a infograph from the stats of some 300+ projects about the most common website bugs they found. Do the stats surprise you? did they align with your experience? Thanks for sharing your thoughts
also new and trying to crack it in automation , it is hard in South Africa to get into the Job market , companies not willing to take someone raw and train them in Automation testing, thanks for the bug list , i will check it
Functionality is a loaded term that encompasses a lot. Let's say a backend API is broken, that's functional right? Let's say the UI button doesn't trigger the action provided by the backend api, that's also classified as functional right? But the latter issue is really an integration issue, and not a functional defect, but from the QA's point of view it's seen as functional. From a manual testing point of view, everything is functional except for security and UI issues.

To test reliability, you have to do a partial load test to generate stress on the system with repeated automated tests running to check the consistency of the functionality while there is load being applied.
To test security, you have to use expensive security testing tools such as AppScan and CheckMarkx which don't tend to run as often as functional automated tests.
Thank you very much for that response Dlai, I hadn't thought of it that way.
