Pick one language and one machine to test Web applications. Find the right combo that resonates with developers and stick with it. For example, Selenium was pretty good at testing JavaScript-heavy Web applications. But it really excelled at driving Firefox on either OS X or Linux with Java client libraries. This was the “killer combo” that resonated with developers. Firefox was their favorite browser and MacBooks were their favorite development machine. Java probably wasn’t their favorite programming language, but it’s what most large-scale Web apps were written in.

Automated testing for Web applications is a crucial piece of the development puzzle, ensuring that everything works when the customer starts using it. However, mobile app testing brings along new challenges that are different from desktop Web testing. 

Jason Huggins, co-founder and CTO of Sauce Labs, a software-testing cloud provider, shares tips on automated testing and how it applies to mobile.
