Features Added to TestLeft 4.73

Applies to TestLeft 15.40, last modified on March 17, 2022

This topic describes the changes made to TestLeft 4.73. For information about the changes in other TestLeft versions, see TestLeft Version History.

  • Smarter SmartBear Test extension installation. You no longer need to exit Chrome during the TestLeft installation or update for the SmartBear Test Extension for Chrome to be installed correctly. This means that the installation (or update) process is no longer disrupted.


    • You may need to reload a web page that has been opened in Chrome during the installation for the test engine to be able to access it.

    • This change doesn’t apply to Edge Chromium at the moment.

  • Smarter object recognition in web applications.TestLeft can now identify text area and input box controls by their labels. This makes object recognition in web applications (for instance, in Salesforce) more reliable and makes the recognition criteria easier to understand.

  • Full support for Chromium-based version of Edge. In previous versions of the product, this support was in Beta.

  • Support for recent versions of web browsers:

    • Google Chrome 88.
    • Mozilla Firefox 85.
  • Support for .NET and WPF applications created with .NET Framework version 4.8.

  • We’ve fixed a few issues reported by our customers.

Discontinued support

  • As Flash Player has reached end of life on December 31, 2020, and browsers now block Flash and Flex content, support for Flash and Flex applications is deprecated in TestLeft and will be removed in a future release.

    We no longer run tests for these technologies and do not guarantee that your tests for Flash and Flex applications will work correctly. We will not provide any bug fixes for them.

  • Support for the Edge-based WebBrowser control (non-Chromium version) is deprecated. It will be removed from the product in one of the future releases.
