However, for both software developers and testers, the fact that a user can choose any Web browser presents a problem—you must test a solution against multiple browsers. In this article, I’ll demonstrate how this problem might be resolved in a simple way by creating coded UI test cases that will execute against any modern browser, using only C#.
