Running the Testsuite

Run the testsuite for couch.js and jquery.couch.js by browsing here:

It should work in at least Firefox >= 3.6 with Private Browsing mode enabled.

When you change the specs, but your changes have no effect, manually reload
the changed spec file in the browser. When the spec that tests Erlang views
