What Is Performance Testing?
Performance testing is a type of non functional testing. It tests the quality of an app under varying capacities. Performance testing is critical because it provides insight into aspects of an app, such as speed, stability, and scalability. Without it, users may encounter poor usability.
Types of Performance Testing
Website Performance Testing
For website performance testing, you need to test page load time across browsers, refresh rates, varying screen sizes, and resolution across different browsers OEMs. All of these factors contribute to the performance of web apps, and can provide top-notch experiences when done right.
Mobile App Performance Testing
Mobile app performance testing must include user conditions such as varying network conditions (poor 4G, 3g, etc.), apps running in the background, and the latency of sensors like location and camera. These factors need to be tested across devices and OS versions in order to provide the best end user experience on mobile apps.
