Cross-platforming testing is an essential part of a website’s development. We all use different browsers for surfing the internet or visiting websites. And people usually go for modern browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox for that smooth internet surfing instead of that ancient Internet Explorer.
Now, you see every browser is quite unique and offers varied functionalities, look and design. It also means that your website needs to be fully compatible and convenient to use on every browser as you need to provide a great experience to every person who visits your website irrespective of the browser they use to visit the site. If your website is fully functional and compatible with every browser and on every device, it leaves a great impact on the visitors and it is true that websites compatible with all the browsers get more visitors as compared to those that aren’t.
So, to make a website more accessible with better viewing, attract more visitors and provide your visitors with a smooth experience you need to make sure that your website is compatible with all the browsers.
It becomes even more important if you are a website developer and you need to design a client’s website. But don’t you think testing every website on so many different browsers manually would take a lot of time? Of course yes, and to help you out there are cross-platform website testing tools available on the internet.
