Feasibility of Mac-Based TestingLocked
Here’s my idea… start up a company that provides testing for software
and web based applications and web sites for the Mac OS (supported
OSes) and multiple browsers (Safari, FireFox, Opera etc).
My experience – being a Mac aficionado and experienced QA tester –
is that applications and web sites are generally designed on non-Mac
platforms and more often than not, designed for IE specifically. So I hit
the site with my Mac/non-IE browser and its a jumbled mess (at best)
or doesn’t work at all (at worst).
I’d love to be able to offer services designed to handle testing other
platforms and browsers the expertise of a company that can quickly
and efficiently offer results for those companies that don’t want to
deal with the cost of setup and maintenance of a group of folks and
I’d like professional opinions… would this be a viable business model?
