Support more browsers and browser versions in MTM

Is cross browser testing supported in MTM 2012?
Can we please have Action Recordings for manual testing being able to be created using other browsers like Chrome and FireFox?

Hi Shubrha, support for the latest browsers would be an acceptable solution.
I kind of need a timeline. It is hard to recommend this solution against say a Selenium if I can't tell clients when Chrome or Firefox will be supported. Especially since it doesn't look it like it was in the newest release of 2012.

Our team has plans for latest browsers support for the scenarios I had mentioned earlier.

"If we provide support for multiple browsers such as IE/Chrome/Firefox in Coded UI Test, would that be an acceptable solution for you?
For MTM specific scenarios, you would need to import MTM recordings (performed on IE) to Coded UI Test and then change browser type to the intended browser."
Provided you mean FF 4 and add Safari into the mix, yes, that would work and that is what I think most here wants not to say needs.
I have asked Shubhra to give an update on this work.

i vote for it
For efficient testing we would like to be able to create a coded ui test and run at against the major browser´s, IE9-10, Chrome, FireFox, Safari, Opere.
The Test team is working on some backlog prioritization and future efforts.
Based on your earlier feedback we were wondering if you could let us know what we should be doing more of/differently.
One of my coworkers has created a survey to facilitate this process: http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22EBRY95XJ6

What is the roadmap for other browsers?
Which browsers does MTM support
Would be great if MTM supported IE9 and Safari
Would be great if MTM supported the most recent version of FireFox (e.g. 7) and also Chrome as it is picking up speed in the market!
For instance the feature pack 2 allows playback in FF 3.5 but there is currently no update to FF4.
The release cycle for supporting multiple browser has to be quicker.
Hoping that partners will build the browser extensions thru the extensibility model is not working.
