“The complexity from a testing perspective is that we’re across all browsers, as well as all operating systems in different types of computers, so we can’t test all the different configurations of what we’re doing with the engineering team that we have. [It has been a great benefit] to be testing our development code as opposed to what is already out there in the world.”
