Testing web applications
What does testing web applications entail?
Web applications, also called browser-based or online applications, are run using browsers such as Chrome or Firefox. Examples of such applications are Facebook or Netflix. Testing web applications primarily involves writing automated tests and conducting manual tests. The entire development team is involved in the testing process, especially QA specialists and developers.
How to test web applications?
We always start testing by getting acquainted with the specification of the functionality that we need to verify. Then we check the testing guidelines usually given by QA specialists. For example, a developer, when implementing a feature, writes a unit test for it. Then it's handed over for manual tests, and after verification by a tester, automated tests are written, such as regression and integration tests. In the end, we recommend commissioning another company for penetration tests, which, among other things, check the security of our application. We repeat the entire cycle until the list of functionalities is finished!
Why is it worth testing applications?
For small, simple applications - both mobile and web - practice often shows that a dedicated QA team and testers are not necessary. In small applications, often the support of a manual tester, who step by step checks all functionalities, is enough. In larger projects covering dozens or more new features, the situation is completely different. Often in such projects, we create completely new modules and functions, which need to be checked for correct operation with due diligence. This is especially important when the application has complex business logic.
In large IT projects, the presence of errors is nothing unexpected - and in most cases, they do not result from programmers' ignorance, but from conflicts between the applied technological solutions. Based on our experience, we can say that using the support of a dedicated QA team is definitely profitable for the Customer. The team of testers has more experience in catching errors in applications than the programmers themselves. An additional advantage is that the testers did not create these functionalities - so in most cases, it's easier for them to look at them from a user's perspective.
Best technologies for testing web applications
In iMakeable, developers write unit tests while creating a specific functionality. Subsequently, they hand over the functionality to a tester who performs manual software testing. If the test results are positive, our QA specialist then proceeds to write automated tests. When creating subsequent functionalities, we run tests to ensure that our changes have not introduced any undesired effects in the application. At iMakeable, we like to utilize technologies such as Cypress, Mocha, Jest, Selenium, or Jasmine.
Cypress is an end-to-end testing framework designed to ensure that web applications work as expected. Unlike many testing tools, it operates directly within the browser, offering more accurate real-world scenario testing. With a rich set of features like time-traveling ...

Why MVP development with iMakeable?
We offer services focused on product success.
Highest software creation standards
We understand that in today's world, software development and a finished application are often not enough to achieve the set goals. At iMakeable, we care about building long-lasting relationships as business partners and helping solve problems for startups and companies in the broadest possible scope - from idea verification, through Product Design, development, to support in scaling solutions and organizing marketing and sales processes. With us, you don't have to look for many different contractors - we can help with most issues that startups and businesses encounter.
Our work requires constant quality control of the code we write - hence a senior-level specialist oversees every project, who has completed at least several projects in their career. We conduct regular Code Reviews, which must be accepted by at least two other people. We use at least three environments in every project - development, pre-production, and production - and thanks to our quality assurance processes, we know that the production environment will be error-free.
We know our products and care about the continuous development of our team. We have permanent developer teams for each project, so their further development is not a problem for us. Thanks to a refined recruitment process, we can be sure that our team consists of the best specialists in their field who align with our work culture. Every quarter, we also verify our competencies, so we know in which direction we should develop.
We work according to the Agile methodology, which we have tailored to the specific needs of our current clients. We will adapt to changes and needs that arise during cooperation. We usually work in two-week iterations - and after each iteration, you will receive ready functionalities from us, which will gradually make up a complete application.
