Though there is no such thing as ‘Bug free software’, but the state of internet is very sad. I was discussing it with a colleague and then thought why I shouldn’t prove it. In 5 minutes, I found an error on CNN.com.
Here are steps to reproduce:
- Using Internet Explorer 9, launch the CNN home page.
- Scroll through the end until you see list of links. Click on ‘My Profile’. Note that I don’t have an account with CNN, so I was interested to see how it behaves.
- The page has some suspicious signs. It not only has a ‘Log in’ or ‘Sing up’ link, it also has ‘Edit my details’ and ‘Log out’ links. Though I’m not signed up, so this itself is a bug.
- Interesting enough, clicking the ‘Edit my details’ showed me this error:
Try this yourself and see it yourself. May be CNN.com should discuss Log in scenarios in a Three Amigos session.
I am sure that if you spend 5 minutes of attention to any page on internet, you’ll find a bug. Do you agree?
