Browser Technologies QA Team Overview

As mobile and Web Services become more prominent in the mozilla project, QA continues to strive to cover and test the projects forthcoming. The current projects with coverage include Mobile Firefox, Test Pilot, Firefox Sync, Jetpack, and Web API's

Team Details

The QA team of Web services and mobile, coordinates a various set of tasks from feature test development to release testing on different platforms. Since many of these groups are still under 2 years old, there are still developmental progress with automation support and conducted processes. In addition, there are some outsourced work that run nightly smoketests and bug verifications on an ongoing basis.


The Browser Technologies mission is two-fold, we aim to improve the quality of Firefox and finely tune it for mobile devices as well as drive the testing efforts for all the Mozilla Labs projects, web services and web apps. As Mobile, Web Services, Labs, and Web Apps become more prominent in the Mozilla project, QA continues to strive to cover and test the projects forthcoming.
