QASymphony, announced that CNET is making its qTrace tool available for download to its 15 million monthly unique visitors.

Dublin, CA (USA), Thursday - March 29, 2012 -- QASymphony ( http://www.qasymphony.com ), a developer of quality assurance (QA) software testing tools, announced that CNET is making its qTrace tool available for download to its 15 million monthly unique visitors at: http://download.cnet.com/qTrace/3000-2383_4-75688929.html

Without the use of video, qTrace captures and records all steps, screens, and system information associated with a defect, then allowing the user to submit the defect trace to any bug tracking system of choice.

Users have found that qTrace can decrease defect capture time by 30-50% and decreases fix time by 10-30%.

qTrace provides testers an easier and faster way to report defects. In the past, software testers worked through an application to find bugs and the drudgery starts; retracing steps, doing screen captures, making notes, compiling a report, opening a defect tracking tool, and then finally submitting a ticket.

Not fun, not productive, and often time-consuming, resulting in defect reports that were missing key pieces of information.

With qTrace, testers simply turn on the tool as they start their testing session. qTrace runs in the background and captures every screen and every step performed during testing. qTrace then automatically generates a detailed defect report from the captured information that includes how the application was being used along with associated environmental information.

qTrace Benefits Include:
* Ease of use. With qTrace, testers use simple point-and click commands to start recordings, modifyrecords, and publish reports.
* Automation. qTrace automates the capture of complete bug reports—including the steps that precipitated the defect’s occurrence. Testers can easily add details or modify the record, or just move forward with submitting a ticket.
* Seamless Integration. Through its integration with leading bug-tracking tools, qTrace enables testers to create new defect records and submit complete details into a bug-tracking tool—with a single mouse click. qTrace also provides an API that allows custom integration with any defect tracking tool.
* Defect reporting quality improvement. By eliminating a lot of manual, error-prone efforts, qTrace helps improve the accuracy and specificity of defect descriptions.
* Productivity boost. With qTrace, teams can spend less time on documentation, and more time on testing. Consequently, testers get better at what’s most important: validating functionality. qTrace helps turn even novice testers into proficient testing experts.
* Product development acceleration. With qTrace, application development teams can speed QA cycles, enhance collaboration and provide better information to development, so the organization can more quickly get qualityproducts to market.
