I'm not disputing this.

a) suggesting a method which improves one's local testing.

b) suggesting changes in the online testing which would make it better.

Finally, it's not the online testing itself which is valuable/necessary.
Its testing on platforms/configurations other than one's own that is
important. Whether this happens on some "official" tester's site or on
someone else's local machine is not really relevant.
