Release of siteSifter 2.10

Version 2.10 of siteSifter is a major upgrade to Greytower’s quality and accessibility testing tool. The release primarily focus on the introduction of the Extended Report Module ( ERM ) , improved tool accessibility and design, and performance upgrades.

An Extended Report is a collection of tests, both automated from siteSifter’s own objective baselines, and manual results from human reviewers. The ERM give users the ability to created extended reports, save them for future work, share them between team members, maintain and adjust a work–flow, and generate reports in a number of formats such as HTML or MS Word.

This new module bridges the gap between automated testing and manual review, making it possible for users to do both in one tool.

Work has also been done on accessibility of the application itself. A new structure, more suitable to keyboard navigation, and a new layout with emphasis on clarity and contrast, make us confident that this version fulfil both WCAG 2.0 to ‘AAA’ and real–world user requirements.

Performance has been improved, with some tests showing a 75% increase in speed; others pick up more detail than ever before.

siteSifter 2.10 is the fastest, most flexible and precise website quality and accessibility testing tool so far produced by Greytower.
