comment One tool to rule them all
For what you are looking for you will need multiple tools, your best bet is to find what area you are strongest in (and get the biggest bang for your buck) then focus on a tool to improve that area. Then move on, remember automation takes time and resources and you can't do everything you are looking for at once or in one tool.

comment Why does IE9 running WebDriver scripts gets out of focus if other applications are open?
I use webdriver without these problems, though its not on Windows 7, I still use Windows 2k8 on my vm's. What is your test driver though, even with the webdriver code limitations on IE I still find the driver helps a lot in overcoming that. SpecFlow and Fitnesse have worked for me

comment How to keep track of the features in a website for impact analysis?
@A.J Are they using a tool? Do you have access to what they have? I typically use wiki's to maintain long term information for this sort of thing like user246 mentions, but if you don't keep it up then the information gets stale. As a wiki everyone has access and it can have multiple points of information flow.

comment What is the best way to handle minor intermittent automation failures during cross browser testing?
Actually this is not my problem, I use page objects for running the automation scripts so HTML changes don't really affect my changes. My issue is more focused on the framework having issues where it generates a false negative and how I can handle/deal with that.

This sort of solution is what I need to settle the issues I am having with the failures, I was doing a similar resolution already so it looks like I was not the only one. Thanks!

comment What is the best way to handle minor intermittent automation failures during cross browser testing?
I think my issue stems from my tests, being browser only due to the application, intermittently fail somewhere in a chain where I cannot verify the immediate error since a subsequent check passes. In general I have confidence in the Framework, but the individual failures trouble me, but perhaps unnecessarily due to the nature of the Web Framework and Browser. Thanks, this sort of gives me a better frame of mind to look at the failures with.

comment How do you manage the expectations of the management that the QA team would find all the bugs in their owned feature?
@pgraham I never agreed with that because you can always find something new that does not work.

comment How should you interview for QA positions?
I used to like the "test this <object>" question and got some good use out of it, but after awhile it became stale as people either heard about it or I just got tired of the same responses. I like the whiteboard and use that now when I can, give a diagram and start a discussion and that works out well.

comment Promoting Non-Functional Testing
I'd almost answer this with Load and Stress testing, since this seems to be what is being asked in the first sentence. But that would not mean less focus on testing during the UAT phase if you are looking to front-load testing...which is how I would read this.

comment Is it good practice to combine my Test and Prod BDD tests in one Framework?
If the Framework is built to run only specific tests in each environment the impact can be mitigated, this is something I tried with Tags and SpecFlow unsuccessfully. Some tests are ideally suited to run in both environments and provide some Acceptance Test capability in Prod. I think part of this stems from my comfort level and these answers are making me think that I should be more than able to run them in both if I deem them capable.
