Mogotest – Automated Browser Compatibility Tests

Mogotest.com is a cross-browser testing suite that performs automatic checks across popular browsers to make sure that a website looks the same, no matter which browser users use in order to access it.

The site was co-founded by Kevin Menard and Nick Plante in 2009. Nick is currently no longer involved with the service.

The site has been accepted in the TechStars accelerator program and received a 12’000 USD investment from them in 2010. Despite its potential usefulness and the relative big market for such a service, Mogotest remained at modest traffic levels, reaching around 1’000 visitors in the most recent months.

Mogo Test has been featured in several web publications, including Testing Web Sites and Hacker News.

TryMyUI.com – Remote Usability Tests for Your Site

TryMyUI

TryMyUI.com allows you to see how a user interacts with a specific website while trying to perform a series of steps specified by you.

You don’t need a site to try the service, you can attempt to do it on other people’s sites or on your competition! For each test you get to see what the other person thought, typed on their keyboard and where they moved the mouse, and you pay $35 per each video result that you get.

The site has been around for about 18 months and it has a couple thousands unique visitors monthly according to Compete. The trend is pretty volative but overall is going upwards, I hope they’re using their own service to find issues with their site and address them – it would be a shame if they weren’t using themselves to improve.

For webmasters and site creators, this is an awesome tool. Sometimes we lose focus on a project – because we’ve worked on it for so long, we don’t realize how it looks like to a random person that doesn’t know anything about it. I recommend to every webmaster to do one of these tests at least monthly, it can really be an eye-opener when it comes to user behaviour and how the world perceives a given site.
