Quick Summary

eValid, is a testing tool suite built into an IE browser -- a true Test Enabled Web Browser™. eValid performs every function needed for detailed WebSite static and dynamic testing, regression testing, QA/Validation, page timing and tuning, transaction monitoring, and realistic & scalable server loading. eValid runs on Windows 2000/XP.

Because eValid actually is a fully functioning browser, eValid has many native capabilities to handle testing of WebSite features that are difficult, awkward, or even impossible with other methods or architectures -- such as passive protocol taps, proxies, wrappers or systems that view a website only from the Windows desktop level. eValid tests any kind of web applications or website naturally and efficiently.
The eValid web analysis and testing suite has a very rich feature set that supports a range of functions: client-side site mapping and QA, functional testing and regression suite development, website timing and tuning, and server loading, and server capacity analysis.
