Announcing Interop 2023
Interop 2022 showed significant improvements in the interoperability of multiple platform features, along with several cross-browser investigations that looked into complex, under-specified, areas of the platform where interoperability has been difficult to achieve. Building on this, we're pleased to announce Interop 2023, the next iteration of the Interop project.
Interop 2022: Outcomes
Last March we announced the Interop 2022 project, a collaboration between Apple, Bocoup, Google, Igalia, Microsoft, and Mozilla to improve the quality and consistency of their implementations of the web platform. Now that it's 2023 and we're deep into preparations for the next iteration of Interop, it's a good time to reflect on how the first year of Interop has gone.
Announcing Interop 2022
Writing high quality standards is a necessary first step to an interoperable web platform, but ensuring that browsers are consistent in their behavior requires an ongoing process. Browsers must work to ensure that they have a shared understanding of web standards, and that their implementation matches that understanding. Interop 2022 is a cross-browser initiative to find and address the most important interoperability pain points on the web platform. The end result is a public metric that will assess progress toward fixing these interoperability issues.
Improving Cross-Browser Testing, Part 2: New Automation Features in Firefox Nightly
It’s clear that WebDriver needs to grow to meet the capabilities of DevTools-based automation. However, that process will take time, and we want more developers to be able to run their automated tests in Firefox today. To that end, we have shipped an experimental implementation of parts of CDP in Firefox Nightly, specifically targeting the use cases of end-to-end testing using Google’s Puppeteer, and the CDP-based features of Selenium 4.
Improving Cross-Browser Testing, Part 1: Web Application Testing Today
Testing web applications can be a challenge. At Mozilla, we see that as a call to action. With our commitment to building a better Internet, we want to provide web developers with the tools they need to build great web experiences – including great tools for testing. In this series of posts, we will explore the current web-application testing landscape and explain what Firefox is doing today to allow developers to run more kinds of tests in Firefox.
