Cross Browser Testing

Whether you are managing a live website or building a new one, you need to ensure a uniform user experience across all browsers and browser versions. Since web browsers don’t render the websites the same way, it becomes essential to perform cross browser testing and check website compatibility on different browsers. By performing cross browser testing, you can ensure that the website behaves as intended across all the browsers. A website comprises the latest web technologies and languages such as HTML, CSS, Python, SQL, PHP, and JavaScript. All these web techs combine to give a complete look and function of the website. When these websites run on different web browsers, browsers execute the website code and display it to the users. But each browser interacts with websites uniquely and
interprets the web components based on their arrangement to represent the website accordingly.

How to choose right browsers for compatibility testing?

It is crucial to perform browser compatibility testing to ensure that the website you designed works well in all types of browsers in different conditions. The question arises, which are the most crucial web browsers you need to test your websites on. To answer this, you need to analyze the most critical browser and versions on the following basis:

Basis of popularity:

Select the most commonly used browsers on popular platforms like
Windows, Android, and iOS. In this way, you can increase the test coverage.

Basis of website analysis:

Analyze your website and try to further breakdown based on
browser, OS, and device. This will help you to understand which combination is most
popular among your target audience.
