Instant replay with superpowers
Capture your actions inside your product. Replay and share when needed. 2-minute setup will save your team hours.
That is WIP for now, but we really wanted you to see what Bird will eventually look like.
Save time reproducing bugs
When you encounter a bug, you can go back in time and see the exact steps that led to it. Especially great for those annoying elusive bugs.
Respect your users' privacy
Don't you find services that let you replay what users do on your site creepy? Bird is an internal tool and does not violate your users' privacy.
File bugs faster
No need to type the steps to reproduce - save your butterfly keyboard. Whoever's fixing the bug will see all your actions and mouse movements.
Doesn't drain resources
Bird doesn't write to SSD and has minimal impact on CPU and RAM, so we are not afraid to use it even on our personal computers.
No coding required
Viewport capture is done with a light-weight Chrome extension, so anybody in your company can start using it instantly.
//This piece of code is just to grab your attention
Questions you should ask
Who is Bird Eats Bug for?
Mainly development teams: PMs, Engineers, QA and Designers.
Extend this to your non-technical people in your company - and you'll start getting good bug reports.
So how does the replay work?
Bird Eats Bug continuously captures DOM elements on the pages of your choice, i.e. production and staging of your product.
When you encounter a bug, you can rewind back, check what actions led to it and share the replay with your teammates or file a bug report.
What about privacy and security? Is my screen recorded all the time?
No. Recording happens only on the URLs you specify. Also, the data doesn't leave your machine before you upload it to share with your teammate.
Tell me about resource consumption: CPU, SSD, etc.
In terms of effect on CPU, we are trying to make our extension consume not more than your ad blocker.
When it comes to memory, recording DOM allows us to use a lot less RAM than recording actual video. We don't write anything to disk, so your SSD life will not be affected.
To further minimise the energy effect, you can only enable recording on certain URLs. We recommend turning it on on staging and production of your product.
How is it different from Hotjar or FullStory?
1. SDKs only report exceptions, not visual or behavior bugs 2. It works even with ad blockers 3. No need to look for your recording among thousands of others 4. It's specifically designed for internal use, so it's not creepy and doesn't violate your users' privacy 5. No GDPR headache 🤯 6. No coding, so Bird is a lot easier and faster to set up
