February 2019 Mozilla Iris Report

About this Report

This is a report on the progress made in the Mozilla Iris project through February 2019.

Mozilla Iris is a new test framework developed by Mozilla’s Product Integrity group. Unlike other automated test frameworks, Iris aims to visually validate user interaction thereby freeing up manual testers from completing the mundane but very necessary tasks performed each and every product release.
