Introducing Percy's 2020 State of Visual Testing

We at Percy are thrilled to be sharing the first-ever State of Visual Testing!

We decided to create this report to share our experience and insights from being on the front lines of visual testing. Although thousands of developers are already utilizing visual testing, we noticed that there just wasn’t much data available to those looking for it.

To shed light on how teams are leveraging visual testing, we decided to take a look at our data and share the results. In addition to looking at our own visual testing data, we wanted to learn more about how developers approach frontend testing in general.

By combining data from our platform and data from our recent frontend testing survey, we were able to create a resource packed with guidance, benchmarks, and best practices, as well as:

  • An educational overview of visual testing and how it works
  • How visual testing fits into the software testing ecosystem
  • The benefits of visual testing
  • Best practices for implementing and running visual testing
  • And lots more!

In 2020 and beyond, we hope this serves as an informative resource for developers learning more about visual testing and would love to hear from you! You can reach us at
