comment How to test database as a manual tester?
It really depends what application you're testing and what things you want to verify. You will expect different checks for simple store/read application, different when testing data migration or verifying differences between prod and staging DBs.

comment Feature toggle on production
But how do you make sure that if you disable the feature, whole code related to it is really disabled and will never be reached through some other endpoint?

comment Web browser (in)compatibility with Selenium WebDriver
@Fabrice31, thank you. Did you have similar problems with compatibility? Did using ESR solved this problem for you?

comment Random test data: How to do it right?
Dale, after reading your comment I came to conclusion I haven't done testing. I've rather done a kind of sampling to answer the questions like: (1) let's see what which users/accounts/groups belong to this class of users/accounts/groups, and (2) let's see what factors/dimensions describe this class. For instance, I found that to administrate users you need more than administrative privileges. So it's rather a way to learn new system and have input for designing tests than tests themselves.

comment Random test data: How to do it right?
Re: "If the test can use arbitrary (random inputs), this means the test needs to replicate a lot of the logic in the system under test.". Well, I've seen solutions that draw a random user and if that user is of type A then check assertion X, and for B check Y. That's obviously duplicating logic. I'm doing the other thing: defining a class of users ( with SQL) and then drawing a random user belonging to this class. You do the same in equivalence class partitioning. So what's the difference? In both approaches you can fail by defining wrong class or picking wrong representative of this class.

comment Non-Functional requirements specification
Hmmm, there is one non-functional requirement that code coverage metric can help measure: maintainability. If you have many good tests I will be easier to introduce a change without breaking existing functionality.

comment Non-Functional requirements specification
I don't think code coverage is a metric to be measured here. High code coverage can help you verify that some of your functional requirements are satisfied but won't tell you whether response time or usability of the application satisfy requirements.
