A few days ago, while I was working on the front-end of a new project, I found myself in a situation where I needed to simulate different responses from the backend to check some functionalities and behavior in different browsers. This has encouraged me to write this articles about the Node.js simulate browser.
At this point, where a vast amount of companies are placing their bets on TDD, functional testing is a mere routine for the server side, but tables do turn on when it comes to the front-end development. With some promising tools in the game (Selenium comes off the top of my head), developers do prefer to leave some testing to ‘humans’ to perform. Why does this happen? Due to a lack of solid support community, or an insufficient number of documentation and guides, maybe. But this discussion is not to be held in this post.
