Spin up your own test environment and test against that. Let's face it, a public facing web page that's designed to attract DDOS testing isn't going to be a valid test candidate. The reason for this is that you'll not know how many other users are hitting a public server or the spec of the environment. If you ran 100 simultaneous users and the site went ...

Is there any other things I am missing from my list? You mentioned "Click on all "link" elements, making sure they are valid, e.g. there is no 404." Is that good enough? Shouldn't you check that the links actually go where they are intended to go? Are you checking for consistency on all the pages? Should they all have the same look & feel? Are you ...

I think you are trying to detect if elements are overlapping. You will need some way in the clientside to tell you if two elements are colliding. I would try jQuery collision for this or some custom JavaScript code. Add or inject jQuery and jQuery collision to the web-app under test Use the Selenium javascriptExecutor to fire a collision detection on two ...

If this overlapped texts belongs to single element, lets say label, or text field. You can locate that element and use "webElement.Text.Contains("the text you want to validate");" method to validate your expected text. And if the overlapped texts belongs to different element, you can simply locate that specific element and validate the text of that element. ...

The choice of a browser depends on your goal. If you are testing GUI rendering and JavaScript execution you should always tests against those browser that your users/customers are using. So even if, for instance, Internet Explorer is slow and unhandy, it make sense to test against it, while if you don't find any bug with PhantomJS it does not mean much, ...

Since you have asked about tests approach in general - think about the non functional tests that are needed for your project: Desktop / mobile and different mobile compatibility - how will the site will look like in them? performance - how quickly the pages will load? and how much will take to submit the form you mentioned and continue? User experience - is ...

The website itself should not matter much which technologies were used from the front end UI points of view, however there will be differences behind the scenes depending on languages and frameworks. I would make the following distinction in terms of a programming position: White box testing. This is testing the functions and code used to build the ...

To be precise and very specific there are no certain guidelines and benchmark defined for the web application related to their Performance. This is a thing which comes to mind of every QA, but unfortunately there are no worldwide or Organization wise accepted standards for the Response Time. It depends upon a number of factor including (but not limited to) ...

Obviously, you can't test everything. The question then is, how can you test as many of the most important things in the time you have available? This is a big question as written, and I'm only going to be able to cover it at a very high level. Apologies if I am not answering at the level you wanted, or if this answer is too basic :-) First of all, try and ...

I can recommend Ranorex. It works both with coding and without (just by capturing the actions). It also supports cross-browser web test automation (Chrome, Firefox, IE and Safari) as you can read here.

Because the question mentions "search result by the query does not satisfy its requirement by position" , it looks like the test objective is to ensure that the right ranking / relevancy based sorting is in place on the search algorithm . To debug / drill down this further, I might ask more details on the query- was it just a simple text search on a single ...
