Browser Testing

Compatibility testing across all major browsers

Your website will unfortunately not display or work consistently across all the web browsers that your site visitors use.

Web browser issues that visitors can experience include the main navigation not displaying or not being usable, entire pages can appear unreadable and a myriad of other browser related problems are commonplace.

Browser compatibility problems have a significant impact on the success of your website and so testing across all the major browsers is necessary to find and report these issues.

Retest

Retest

We can retest all the bugs fixed plus carry out a full regression test to make sure nothing has been broken.

Updated & New Web Browsers

New web browsers are being released all the time, with new versions of Chrome and Firefox coming along every 4 to 6 weeks. To prevent any new browser issues being discovered by your website visitors, we regularly retest your website in each new browser version as it is released.

For example, each release of Internet Explorer can cause major problems for many websites and these potential issues can be significantly reduced through WebDepend testing your website on browser beta versions prior to the main browser release.

Automated Screenshots

In addition to the manual browser testing, we can create automated tests that save a screenshot of a web page in each browser version and provide a report highlighting any browser compatibility issues.

This regular service offers peace of mind that your website continues to display correctly in each browser version.
