Detail the purpose of this document. For example:

  • The test scope, focus areas and objectives
  • The test responsibilities
  • The test strategy for the levels and types of test for this release
  • The entry and exit criteria
  • The basis of the test estimates
  • Any risks, issues, assumptions and test dependencies

This wiki details the testing that will be performed by the project team for the Pointer Events project. It defines the overall testing requirements and provides an integrated view of the project test activities. Its purpose is to document what and how we shall test:

  • Permissions are listed and correctly managed for devices using this feature
  • Events are recorded in the DevTools Console
  • Website compatibility issues

Testing Summary

Scope of Testing

In Scope

Testing efforts will currently be focused on ensuring that the expected PointerEvents are triggered by the expected initiators, on various websites compatible with this feature.

Out of Scope


Requirements for testing


In terms of platform coverage, testing will focus on Windows-only, starting with (and including) Windows 7.

Test Strategy

Test Objectives

This section details the progression test objectives that will be covered. Please note that this is at a high level. For large projects, a suite of test cases would be created which would reference directly back to this master.

  1. Permissions are listed and correctly managed
  2. Events are recorded in the DevTools Console
  3. Website compatibility


This section should contain links for builds with the feature

  • Links for Nightly builds
  • Links for Aurora builds
  • Links for Beta builds
