Web Testing Tutorial Using DalekJS

| Comments

DalekJS Logo Have you ever wondered how to easily test the web pages you were creating? Or just want to test some issues multiple times between development phases? I have tried some testing tools including the widely used Selenium. These tools tend to be quite heavy and hard to start doing the actual testing.
