Cross-browser Compliance

Internet Browser

There are six major browsers being used today on three different OSes: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Opera and Konqueror; on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Each of these browsers is equipped with its own custom rendering engine that parses HTML and CSS and displays web pages to the user. Because of this, each browser displays a slightly different variant of the HTML and CSS markup.

This can cause problems with the usability of websites. Some people may be using an older version of a browser that may not render the page as per the W3C specifications. Others may not have the necessary plugins on their platform to display content. To ensure that such problems don't crop up, WebrMedia produces W3C compliant HTML and CSS code during development and tests it on each browser on each platform.

While this can remove a lot of the problems, some need to be tackled individually with changes to reflect only in certain versions of browsers. Our internal cheatsheet for quirks and fixes for specific versions of browsers is handy during such times.

Browser testing

We test all our websites using the top four browsers by user share (95%+ comprising Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari) and on the major operating systems these browsers are supported in (Windows, Linux and Mac OS X). Our goal is to ensure that the end user's experience is identical, regardless of the browser or operating system being used.
