For all you QA folk out there (and those who aren’t but dream of being) here is a little list of some neat sites and tools to aid in your testing efforts…
Style GUI Test
Sometimes you have to clean your cache and ensure that you are testing from a browser with no cookies, no temp files. Each of these tools do this and much, much more.
Team System Test (Load) – Trial version – Visual Studio Lifecycle Management
The Print Screen button – Paste to editor of your choice
Microsoft Expression Encoder – a really neat capture tool but with onboard graphics on my laptop there is no preview for video capture before saving.
IrfanView – I have been using this since 1999 and it still is my favorite do everything viewer (editor) for Graphics and Multimedia.
Microsoft XML Notepad – this is worth a look if you want to see your XML as a table and have (haven’t we all) accidentally deleted tags when editing. You don’t touch the XML a la Notepad style editing. Instead you tab to the value you want to amend.
File Hippo – their Application and Library makes for a killer combo.
Soluto – if you have read my blog before you know I highly rate this.
