    Which tools do you find help you the most as a tester? Not testing specific tools but other generic tools. Could be a simple video recorder or sticky notes or anything else

    @abir11khan Byte Counter and Text Compare are two great little tools. Good suggestions. How often do you use them?

    @cyildirim Postman is getting a lot of praise and seems to be growing in popularity. That Wave.webaim tool is great. Seems really useful for site testing.

    Really useful tools there. I have already started using a few like the full web page capture on Chrome.
    Mind Mapping Software is next on the list.

    Thanks all. More suggestions are always welcome 🙂

    A really useful tool that’s built into Windows is Steps Recorder. You just set it off to record and it will take screenshots as you go and record where you clicked or typed both visually and in text form. It also records screen names and program versions. and stores it all in a zipped mht file. Other than starting it, stopping it and saving the file, the user doesn’t have to do a thing. Potentially very handy

    Came across another tool: gyazo.com
    It is a free program to capture 7 sec gifs of your screen. Very easy to use and a link of the gif is created that you can share with others
    Very handy when you want to record the defect steps (that are not very long)

    We tried Kualitee for our test management activities and still using it.

    Would like to add a handy freeware tool for comparing three files in parallel .i.e DiffMerge

    If you are using JIRA, there is a helpful plugin called Capture which lets you easily grab screenshots and annotate and attach them to JIRA tickets.

    QA tools and requirements table

    12 tools, 8 requirements. Purple means the tool meets the requirement.

    We’ve recently tested 12 tools for web software testing and summed up the results in this table. Details on the research in this article:

    Nice tool .. I was not aware a tool like this exists. It surely saves a lot of time.

    http://automateyourtests.com is a free automated functional testing tool for web applications, which I have participated in developing.

    You should be able to execute your own custom-written proof-of-concept test suite 10 minutes after downloading it, that’s how little learning curve I’d like there to be.
