“Will TestComplete test my application?” -- This is probably one of the first questions our clients ask about TestComplete. As a matter of fact, TestComplete does not depend on any development tool. It can simulate user actions (keystrokes, mouse movements and clicks) under any application no matter whether this application was created in C#, Visual C++, Delphi or Java. However, in most cases, this kind of testing (testing via GUI) cannot provide reliable and thorough results. Quite often, QA engineers need access to the application internal objects, methods and properties. This is required, for example, for unit testing. You can get this access using TestComplete. It can “open” internal objects, methods and properties up to private object elements in the application under test.
Below is a list of major development tools, software platforms and application types supported by TestComplete.

If you have a TestComplete version earlier than 12.42, your version of the SmartBear Test Extension will be incompatible with newer versions of the Chrome web browser. To test web applications in Chrome 74, you will have to upgrade your TestComplete to some later version. We recommend using version 14.10.
If you use a later version of Google Chrome, check whether a patch is available for it.
Chrome running in Modern UI (Metro) mode is currently not supported.
Mozilla Firefox 60 – 66 (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions)
If you use a later version of Firefox, check whether a patch is available for it.
