  1. Thanks Joe, Jeffery.
    I hope that the excitement over the MS new browser will not fall
    under “triumph of hope over experience”.

    Not related to the subject, is it just me or everyone at SmartBear seems to be extra nice and helpful?
    (As a former client, I had my share of contact with their account management and support as well)

  2. Very interesting discussion. It is very important to understand windows 10 changes. Interesting and challenging times ahead for Testers.
