Most web developers reduce browser bugs down to small test cases, but the act of collecting the results of these tests turns out to be a pain, and finally the results end up in docs, email, or lost in a spreadsheet. Browserscope aims to solve this problem.

This session will provide context for the existing test categories on www.browserscope.org, provide a look at the data in the public test sets(Modernizr, HasJs, JSPerf) and then walk participants through how to write a test and store their own test results on Browserscope.

We’ll then look at fun ways of slicing and dicing the data using tools like Yahoo Pipes, IBM’s ManyEyes and Google’s Visualization library.
