Let us take eCommerce for instance. 69.89% of all checkouts are abandoned, and 17 percent of those are attributed to website crashes and errors. Assuming that a million sales would be accrued by a company that’s 59,407 sales lost because of errors and crashes that may have been thwarted by testing.
Fortunately, there are a range of exceptional testing programs so we’re going to have a look at 7 of the best 28, today.
Technically, the net browsers we should be supporting now are the ones that our users and clients are using, information that’s easy enough to find using Google Analytics or another sort of web analytics monitoring software. But if you do not have that Sort of information available, here are the worldwide statistics*:

Bear in mind that there are releases of each web browser across multiple OSs. Sound frightening? Not actually, but it is boring as heck to be testing websites on all them!

*Because of November 2018.

  • Code validation: do some plugins report code mistakes?
  • Performance: is the website slow, or perhaps causing crashes?
  • Reactive layout : is your layout always responsive?
  • Other odd behaviors: anything else simply not working?

What happens if I do not test?

Cross-browser testing is the formality of testing web applications and websites in each one of the common web browsers which consumers use now — this ensures we provide a user experience that is consistent everywhere, and not the internet browser which takes our fancy. Here are a Few of the things to look out for:

  • Chrome: 61.75%
  • Safari: 15.12%
  • Firefox: 4.92percent
  • UC: 4.22%
  • Opera: 3.15%
  • Internet Explorer: 2.8percent
  • Samsung Internet: 2.74percent
  • Microsoft Edge: 2.15%

Inconsistencies are really normal. Truth is, all web browsers behave and render sites a little differently, and some browsers might not even support the features we originally aimed to use; and whenever these inconsistencies appear, it can have a direct effect on the revenue (among other things).

Since Microsoft announced they’d be ditching Chakra engines and their own EdgeHTML in favor of the widely-adopted Blink and V8 engines, this implies many of the major browsers now offer similar levels of code compatibility. While this is a step back concerning healthy competition, it will imply that if a website works in Google Chrome, it’ll most likely work in Brave, Opera, and soon-to-be Microsoft Edge. That combined with the fact that Microsoft has taught us to stop using Internet Explorer, cross-browser testing is more easy than it has ever been before, using Safari and Firefox with their engines.

First off, what is cross-browser testing?
