How can we improve updown.io?

Javascript browser tests

It would be cool to have more advanced browser tests that could test javascript.

It already happened to me that my javascript file couldn't be loaded (come cache issue) which resulted in an unusable website until we realized the javascript had crashed and all menus were unuseable.

Some services can scripted browser tests so we can verify some javascript interactions actually work. Would love to see that on your app.

    Unfortunately this is much more expensive and super unreliable so we’ll never use it for the main monitoring. Though at some point we may add some side features to try your website in a browser from time to time and let you know if it breaks for some reason but that’ll only be warning notifications (like we do with SSL alerts).
    And most importantly it won’t be configurable, as this would require a very complex setup which is not in the updown.io philosophy
