Additional browser considerations

TruClient records your actions while you perform a business process on the browser that TruClient displays. To simulate the functionality of a particular browser, choose that browser when recording or replaying a script.

Generally, the TruClient Web protocol adjusts to differences between supported browsers, so you can record on one browser and replay on any supported browser. However, if you record a script in one browser and replay it in a different browser, you might encounter issues in test results and in the test run. For details, see Replaying on different browsers.
