Cross Browser Testing

Cross Browser Testing is a process to test web applications across multiple browsers.


Cross Browser Testing is a process to test web applications across multiple browsers. With wide range of web browsers available, end users using different web browsers to access your web applications, it has now become crucial to test web applications on multiple browsers. On different browsers, client components like JavaScript, AJAX requests, Applets, Flash, Flex etc. may behave differently. Also for different browsers you may have different handling on how requests are processed on server side based on the user-agent received from client browser. So just testing your web application on single web browser is not enough.

 You need to make sure that your web application works fine across multiple browser. Cross browser testing involves checking compatibility of your application across multiple web browsers and ensures that your web application works correctly across different web browsers. Cross Browser testing involves testing both the client side and server side behavior of your Web application when it is accessed using different Web Browsers.

  • Different browsers other than the one or two that you use regularly on your devices, including slightly older browsers that some people might still be using, which don't support all the latest, shiniest CSS and JavaScript features.
  • Different devices with different capabilities, from the latest greatest tablets and smartphones, through smart TVs, right down to cheap tablets and even older feature phones that may run browsers with limited capabilities.
  • People with disabilities, who use the Web with the aid of assistive technologies like screenreaders, or don't use a mouse (some people use only the keyboard).

Workflows for Cross Browser Testing

  • Initial planning:

    • In the initial planning phase, we will probably have several planning meetings with the site owner/client, in which we determine exactly what the web site should be — what content and functionality should it have, what should it look like, etc. 
  • Development

    • Now on to the development of the site. We should split the different parts of the development into modules, for example We might split the different site areas up — home page, product page, shopping cart, payment workflow, etc.
  • Testing/discovery

    • After each implementation phase, we will need to test the new functionality. To start with, we should make sure there are no general issues with our code that are stopping our feature from working:

      1. Test it in a couple of stable browsers on our system, like Firefox, Safari, Chrome, or IE/Edge.
      2. Do some low fi accessibility testing, such as trying to use our site with only the keyboard, or using our site via a screen reader to see if it is navigable.
      3. Test on a mobile platform, such as Android or iOS.
  • Fixes/iteration

    • Once we've discovered a bug, we need to try to fix it.
