Built in support for visual regression testing
Problem to solve
As part of ~"Category:Usability Testing" and general quality assurance, many times teams want to implement
visual regression testing to make sure that known design elements, positioning, and colors do not change unintentionally. While gitlab-foss#53390 (closed) will provide a lot of great tools for manual usability testing. However there are a large number of open source tools available for automated visual regression testing.
This issue will serve to recommend that, but will likely need to turn into an epic/series of issues to define the MVC and future plans for this.

This will directly contribute to our ~"Product Vision 2019" as it will make ~"usability testing" a first class citizen.
- Create an MVC that first makes manual regression testing easier, something like this issue that opens current design from Visual Reviews and measure engagement with the tool overall / button to review designs.
- Evaluate open source tools such as:
What does success look like, and how can we measure that?
