Transcript of "Browser compatability testing S-Testers Connect"

  1. 1. Guide to Browser Compatibility TestingRecently, I had to learn how to effectively test a web-based application across multiplepopular browsers.Then I started to read various websites/blogs of Leaders in Software Testing, how othertesters approach this problem and what tools they are using for this.On my personal research, I have found lots of information from testing community.I would like to share the information to our Software Testing Newsletter.Cross Browser TestingCross browser testing is a type of compatibility testing designed to ensure that a webapplication behaves correctly (sometimes identically) in several different browsersand/or browser versions.Browser Compatibility ChecklistsHere’s a handy browser testing checklist to refer while testing the web project ondifferent browsers and operating systems:1) CSS validation2) HTML or XHTML validation3) Page validations with and without JavaScript enabled4) Ajax and JQeury functionality5) Font size validation6) Page layout in different resolutions7) All images and alignment8 ) Header and footer sections9) Page content alignment to center, LHS or RHS10) Page styles11) Date formats12) Special characters with HTML character encoding13) Page zoom-in and zoom-out functionality06 September 2012 1
  2. 2. And obviously you will have to repeat these tests on:14) Different Operating Systems like Windows, Linux and Mac15) Different browsers (with different versions) like Internet explorer, Firefox, GoogleChrome, Safari and Opera.Cross-Browser Testing Tools (Free and Commercial)  IE Tester: http://www.my-debugbar.com/wiki/IETester/HomePage  BrowseEmAll: http://www.browseemall.com/?utm_expid=57129852-1  SuperPreview: http://expression.microsoft.com/en-us/dd565874.aspx  Browsera: http://www.browsera.com/  BrowserShots: http://browsershots.org/  Spoon.net: http://spoon.net/browsers  CrossBrowserTesting: http://crossbrowsertesting.com/  SauceLabs: https://saucelabs.com/features  TestStudio: http://www.telerik.com/automated-testing-tools  Adobe BrowserLab: https://browserlab.adobe.com/en-us/index.html  Selenium: http://seleniumhq.org/  Lunascape 6: http://www.lunascape.tv/Validation Checkers:  HTML, XHTML Validators: http://validator.w3.org/  CSS Validators: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/06 September 2012 2
  3. 3. Estimating Risk of BugsThis information represented graphically below helps to explain a particular test strategyof probability of finding the bugs to the team.If you have one or more browsers in the red or amber area then this is probably wherethe testers should turn their thoughts first and Browsers in the green area then follows.06 September 2012 3
