QTP11 Internet Explorer 9 Support

I am currently working on a QTP project where we are required to run our regression suite on different browser configurations to make sure everything runs fine.

The very new requirement that came up to us was to check if the same application runs fine in IE9 as well. Initially, I was a bit disappointed as QTP didnt support Internet Explorer 9. However, my disappointment didnt last long as HP has finally released a patch QTPWEB_00078 for testing web applications in IE 9.

Using QTP patch QTPWEB_00078, you can test your web application on Internet Explorer 9 on any operating system as long as the Operating system is supported by the QTP11.

QTP11 Support for Google Chrome

The wait has finally over. QTP 11 now supports Google Chrome. Google Chrome was released in March 2008 and after stuggling a bit initially, now it enjoys a very healthy market share amongst other browsers. With Google chrome reaching near to 25% market share according to stats from Statcounter, HP people were forced to provide chrome support for HP QTP 11.

For that, we need to install HP Patch QTPWEB_00088. But it comes with few limitations too.

  • QTP can not record on Google Chrome. It can only play back scripts in Chrome, a big limitation.
  • Support for multiple tabs is not available unlike in IE or firefox.
  • Few methods like Browser.Home, Browser.FullScreen, Browser.ClearCache and Browser.Object are not supported in Google Chrome.
  • Few environments: SAP Web, Siebel, Java,.NET WebForms are not supported on Google Chrome browser with QTP 11.
