Browsers Testing

Do you know how your website or web page appear in another search engine, operating system or with a different screen resolution?! The layout, margins, display sources, texts, and other features of the website may change completely when viewed on a search engine, operating system, or screen resolution that is different from what is set on your computer.

And as you know, technology and the internet do not stop evolving, so websites, web pages or blogs, should resort to cross-browser or browsers testing.

But what is the cross-browser?

It is the ability of a website or web application to support various Internet search engines such as Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, etc. regardless of technology (HTML, CSS, Javascript).

Why should cross-browser testing be performed?

Its accomplishment is of extreme importance since they allow to evaluate the visual and usability of the website or web page in the different versions of the search engines. In this way, you can ensure that all users correctly observe the website, regardless of the search engine used, avoiding the loss of customers. Take the following example: the user accesses your website through a search engine different from yours and can not finish the purchase process because the final form appears cut or is not even presented. What happens?! This user will look for the same product or service in the competition!

Through the cross-browser tests, it is possible to evaluate the appearance of the website, navigation, forms, maps, among others, preventing barriers to entry of new users or customers. During this process, three factors must be considered:

  • Search Engine: which is used by users and which version is installed
  • Operating System: Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, Windows Mobile, among others
  • Screen Resolution: the size set on the users' monitors (800x600, 1024x768, 1152x864, 1280x1024, 1600x1200)

It is the combination of these three factors that allows you to standardize the layout, margins, forms and other graphic aspects of the website or web page in the different search engines.

Ensure a great browsing experience for your customers!
