Who Does Nathan Latka Call "The Real Unicorn" And Why?

June 29th, 2022

A few weeks ago, Inflectra’s CEO - Adam Sandman, was invited for an Interview with Nathan Latka - a serial entrepreneur and the CEO of FounderPath. Unlike what you’d expect from an interview with a tech company founder - i.e., a pre-cleared set of interview questions - the two launched into an honest discussion in less than 30 seconds after meeting each other for the first time. The result is a candid view of Inflectra, its business model, company culture, profits, business practices, and its founder - Adam Sandman - aka - “The Real Unicorn.”

Find out how & why Adam got this nickname in a short (admittedly, very fast-paced) conversation below!

Spotlight on Rapise 7.3: New Selenium Based Recording for Chrome and Edge Browsers

June 23rd, 2022

In December of 2020, the Google Chrome browser team made a major announcement - the release of Google Chrome Manifest 3. This new version of Chrome is designed to radically improve the security and safety of web browsing. Specifically:

With the introduction of Manifest V3, we will disallow remotely hosted code. This mechanism is used as an attack vector by bad actors to circumvent Google’s malware detection tools and poses a significant risk to user privacy and security.

However this new manifest version has an unfortunate side effect for the software testing industry, it will prevent the Chrome extensions used by many popular test automation tools such as Rapise, Ranorex, TestComplete, UFT and others from working. Luckily in the case, of Rapise, we have new web browser recording solution ready for you to use in Rapise 7.3. This will be released six months before Google formally switches over to Manifest V3.
