Cross Browser Testing

Cross-browser testing will highlight any inconsistencies in your website when it is viewed in different browsers. Our expert testers will achieve coverage across multiple display resolutions to ensure that browsers visually render your web pages consistently, irrespective of screen size and any JavaScript functionality performs as expected. This process gives you confidence that your site will perform exactly as your designers intended, regardless of which browser or device the user chooses to access it from.

Using Kedu’s test lab, we can cross-browser test your site across a variety of physical and virtual machines covering an extensive range of OS and browser combinations. Our lab provides our testers with the tools to ensure that your website can be viewed on all web-enabled devices, including the full range of mobile and tablet devices, as well as laptops and smart TVs.

Browsers

We’ll create a browser spec document recommending appropriate browsers based on current market trends  (UK and global). This will all be clearly recorded and documented into a template that can be used to inform future development and testing of your site.

Responsive Websites

Our team of testers have considerable experience testing responsive websites that are CMS content-driven. The challenge with testing these sites is ensuring that templates can handle varying amounts of content and text. Testing will ensure that the content flow is fluid and the content wrapping is both consistent and appropriate for the page in question. We’ll identify any areas where the fluidity of the responsive design could be improved or enhanced, so the website experience and the visuals are all appropriate at every breakpoint and across common screen resolutions.

Why Cross Browser Testing is Important

  • Internet browsers will interpret and render web pages differently, potentially responding differently based on width of the device
  • Older browsers are often less capable, and require bespoke code to provide a consistent or substituted behaviour, which potentially degrades the user experience
  • Fonts will render differently in each browser and screen size, risking distorted or inappropriately wrapped text
  • JavaScript errors in different browsers can occur as some older browsers may not respond appropriately to recent JavaScript language functions, causing errors when interacting with the page
  • Performance in older browsers may be poor and cause pages to load slowly

Browser Support

Our team can provide recommendations to inform the range of browsers to support and test. We use information on current trends and user statistics to provide you with the most relevant advice. To start the process for your project, just ask us for our browser support template.
