Say you're testing an application, like Blogger, that allows the user to type in a URL, and then should have a link show up in the edit window.
You are concerned about getting the URL cut-off the page, or beyond the input constraint, etc, and so you want to do bounds testing on a URL that is real - but also really big.
Here's one to bookmark:
Ironically enough, on Blogger, the click-through is intact but the line doesn't wrap - so - at least on FireFox - I can't see the entire URL.
We call this kind of test the quicktest - Elisabeth Hendrickson even has a cheat sheet for some quick tests to consider for input.
What are /your/ favorite quicktests?
