CROSS BROWSER AND COMPATIBILITY TESTING
As there is a wide range of web browsers available users are using different web browsers to access their web applications, so it is very important to test applications on multiple browsers. On different browsers, components may behave differently. So just testing the web application only on one web browser is not enough. To make sure that our web application works fine across multiple browsers, we need to test it thoroughly on different browsers.
Cross Browser Testing is a process to test web applications across various browsers, operating systems, browser versions, and various devices. It involves testing the compatibility of any application to ensure that the web application works as expected across different web browsers. Cross-Browser testing involves both the client-side and server-side testing.
Basically, It is a type of testing that verifies if an application works across different browsers as expected and maintain consistent behavior throughout all different browsers. It is the process of testing your application's compatibility with several browsers.
Methods of Performing Cross Browser Testing:
There are two methods for performing Cross Browser Testing:
Manual Cross Browser Testing Method
In the manual method, Testers execute the same test cases on different browsers manually and observe the applicationâ€™s behavior and report bugs if any.
In this form of testing, it is impossible to cover all browsers, and the application may not be tested on main browser versions.
Also, It is costly and time-consuming too.
Automated Cross Browser Testing
Basically, Cross-browser testing stands for running the same test cases multiple times on different browsers and operating systems. This can be easily done by automation. As a result, employing tools to perform this testing is less expensive and takes less time.
A lot of tools are available in the market to perform automation testing.
One such tool is the LambdaTest tool.
LambdaTest is a cloud-based cross-browser testing tool through which users can perform automated & manual compatibility testing of any website or web app on various browsers, mobile devices and on different operating systems.
Users can run Selenium automation tests on a cloud-based Selenium grid and perform live interactive cross-browser testing of their public or locally hosted websites and web app on the cloud.
