Test Studio Explore is a small tool that will help you be more efficient in doing exploratory testing.

  • It leverages Test Studio's investment in bug tracking and image capturing to allow you to easily capture bugs and send feedback in your exploratory testing sessions.
  • The tool is designed to be light-weight, handy, and easy to launch and access.
  • Test Studio Explore is available in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome.

    • IE and Safari - the tool is automatically installed with Test Studio installation.
    • Firefox - the tool is deployed along with the Test Studio installation within the respective extension. NOTE: A working Exploratory testing extension is only available for Firefox versions 42 and previous due to the signed add-ons policy introduced for Mozilla browser in all newer versions.

    • Chrome - Download the Telerik Test Studio Chrome Explore extension and enable it to use the tool.
