IE Results for Free & New Table Browsing Features

If you've made a UserTest on Browserscope, you know that one of the first things you want after doing the work of getting your test right is to see some real data! So you fire up a couple of browsers and boom, you've got a few rows. But that's not very likely to give you the spread that you're looking for. More often than not, because of its market share, I really want IE results. Yeah, I have 4 VMs I can fire up, but all in all that takes too damn long.

Enter today's integration! Now, from your settings page on Browserscope, there's a blue button you can use to trigger an IE 6, 7, 8, & 9 to automatically visit your test URL. We append a URL parameter (autorun=1) to your test URL so that you can be sure your test is being run under this context. Otherwise, it's generally better/nicer to use a button and prompt your user to run your test. ;)

Additionally, there's now a control in the results table that allows you to navigate through the browser lists as well as compare results for particular UAs and filter sparse results (results with some test count < X).

Hopefully these changes and improvements will help you to gather and navigate your data more easily.
