What Is Cross-Browser Parallel Test Automation?

Cross-browser parallel testing is performed to run a single test across multiple browser combinations, simultaneously. This is a very practical and powerful scenario for automation testing. Cross-browser parallel test automation allows you to scale back execution time while not compromising with coverage of your check and leads to faster test results.

What Is Watir?

Watir is an open source Ruby library which helps to achieve cross-browser automation testing. Watir supports Ruby, which is an object-oriented language and typically it’s simpler and faster than other languages. The good thing about Watir is that it supports any web application irrespective of the technology used to develop that application.
