What makes this "best"?

comment How do I test a comment box?
Are these two different test situations? Otherwise don't the two "attributes" contradict each other? Perhaps you could clarify.

comment Positive and negative test cases for login page
Did you ask the interviewer what "best" meant in this context? Without that, this question cannot be answered.

comment How to specify mobile devices web-app to be tested for in the Requirements?
Yes. My company built a web application that responded with a different UI when it detected that it was being viewed on a mobile device. But the detection only cared about desktop-vs-mobile. It never cared about which mobile device was being used.

comment How to specify mobile devices web-app to be tested for in the Requirements?
Is your web-application sensitive to the specific device being used? If so, you may need to list them all specifically. If not, there is no need to do so.

comment For successful build how many test cycles are required
What about the number of testers on the project? Wouldn't that be an important factor?

comment Mobile testing process: pro vs cons
Is this a real App, or is this a mobile-friendly website? (i.e. is it installed through the App Store? Or does it just look good on a mobile device when you visit the website?)

"Oracle Virtualbox and vSentry cannot coexist" thanks! Can you point out a source for this? Which will not activate - VirtualBox or Bromium?

comment Will getting a Software Testing Certification benefit me in my career?
Where in the world do you work? Location matters a lot in regard to these sorts of certifications.

comment Generic Automation Framework
Perhaps you could explain what you understand "automation framework" to mean, and then what you mean by a "generic automation framework".

comment Should Copy Paste be allowed in Confirm e-mail address field?
Assuming the call takers are experienced at using the system, it seems odd to me to force them to enter the customer's email twice. I wouldn't design it that way. But if the field is there, I would probably disable the past feature.

comment Is it possible to test app behaviors without considering UI and client platform?
I understand, but some apps take a different path through the code when they detect the client is a desktop device rather than a mobile device. If you were watching, you would see a different series of GET and POST requests coming in from different clients. Perhaps it doesn't matter for your app. You could use a tool which abstracts the client, such as cURL.

comment Is it possible to test app behaviors without considering UI and client platform?
Are you assuming your application behaves identically without regard to the end user's platform? Many apps dynamically change their behavior in the presence of a mobile, small-screen client versus a desktop client. (That's how the app I am testing works, for example).

comment Standards for documenting input validation rules & system/error messages?
I've something similar in the past (although I don't have an example around). Consider adding things like max length, target db table+column, etc

comment How to handle new “not reproducible” bug, that is known to exist but not known how
Good answer. In addition to the Product Manager, you can often enlist Customer Service in getting more information from the customer who reported the problem. Joining in on a phone call or webex might be in order, too. And perhaps this instance will help in your justification for a professional QA Team ;-)

By "demanding" do you mean "is in the most demand" by companies hiring Senior SQA Engineers?

comment What is a good website to hack around using Selenium?
@dzieciou - perhaps, but so what? When analyzing web logs, it's pretty easy to determine if the hits are coming from web crawlers or not. You aren't a web crawler, thus you are at risk of being put on a black list.
