Exploratory Testing

Definition - What does Exploratory Testing mean?

Exploratory testing is a software testing technique that does not use any specific test design, plan or approach.

It is a software testing technique in which the testers explore and identify different means of evaluating and improving the quality of the software.

Techopedia explains Exploratory Testing

Exploratory testing is an unscripted approach to software testing, where the tester is free to select any possible methodology to test the software. Exploratory testing is a common practice by software developers that utilize their personal skills and abilities to test the software they developed and/or coded.

Exploratory testing simultaneously tests the functionality and operations of the software while at the same time identifying any functional or technical problems in it. The goal behind exploratory testing is to optimize and improve the software in any way possible.
