Regardless of the browser used, AlertSite provides businesses with the valuable insight into the online experiences of their users."

DejaClick automatically builds testing scripts by following users' clicks to define monitoring scenarios. With the new Chrome support, a single scenario recording can be used to measure performance in all the major Web browsers.
