The Perfecto Continuous Quality Lab provides, in addition to the large set of mobile and wearable devices, a set of desktop-web environments for testing web applications. The web environments are characterized by -
- Operating System - for example Windows 8.1 or MacOS Sierra
- Browser version - for example Chrome v62, Firefox v58, Safari v10
- Screen resolution - to support testing responsive web applications.
- Browser location setting - either US East, AP Sydney, or EU Frankfurt.
The Web device is presented to the test script as a virtual machine, hosted by the Perfecto CQ Lab. Normal initialization for the latest version combinations of the VM is approximately 3-5 seconds.
Use the browserVersion capability to select the version of the browser to configure in your Desktop Web device.
You can follow the browser version road-maps at the following links:

- Perfecto's extensions, aside from Visual Analysis commands, are currently not supported for desktop Web testing.
- Desktop-web devices, used in Selenium scripts, may not be displayed on the Perfecto Dashboard. If this is a requirement, follow the instructions here.
- When creating a session with platformName capability set to Mac, the location capability is mandatory.
