Using Visual Regression checks to Make Sure You Never Miss a Problem on Production

Thank you to all who joined Tim and Nočnica for a tour of our visual regression features and how it can transform the reliability of your user experience. For those who didn't attend live, check out the recorded version of our webinar:

Traditional end-to-end (e2e) pre-deploy testing systems incorporate visual regression testing to catch discrepancies. This system assumes that the interface of a site will not change between code deployments. But with third party dependencies and render-time changes from things like Google Tag Manager, we know that visible regressions can happen at any time. That’s where Checkly’s synthetic monitoring can help you monitor your site or service continually, letting you know any time something changes.

This webinar introduces an approach to visual regression monitoring, utilizing Playwright and Checkly. Playwright, an open-source end-to-end testing framework supported by Microsoft, enables you to simulate complex paths through your site. Checkly, which uses playwright to create synthetic service monitors, enables the execution of visual regression tests at regular intervals. This combination alerts developers to potential interface problems before they become visible to users.
