What is exploratory testing?
Exploratory testing is a type of software testing where, rather than executing pre-scripted tests, testers create tests “on the fly” to explore the functionality of a piece of software. After observing the results of the test, testers create new tests based on what they have learned.
What are the benefits of exploratory testing?
Exploratory tests tend to find more bugs than scripted, automated tests. Exploratory tests take a real-world approach to testing, exploring a piece of software just as a real user would. Exploratory testing can often produce faster results, as there is little to no time spent authoring, preparing, and approving test cases. And exploratory tests can support traditional testing by converting exploratory sequences into automated, functional test cases.
