Something that makes a website great is when it is compatible in multiple browsers regardless of version. Technically this is referred to as cross-browser compatibility.
Generally two different terms are used for the ability of the website and web applications, to support many browsers, these terms are cross-browser and multi-browser compatibilities.
Multi-browser means a website will work in several web browsers like Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer.
Cross-browser means a website works in any browser, and any version of the browser, being used.
This is a big challenge in development of a website. If a user cannot view your website properly, he will not blame the operating system or his browser…he will blame the website itself. The goal as developers is to avoid that.
We make sure that our websites are compatible with the most popular browsers so we perform cross-browser compatibility check. There are several methods present for cross browser compatibility checking, the one we generally use is CloudTesting tool that enables web developers to view a website using any of the web browsers listed below.
The browsers it supports are:
• Internet Explorer 7, 8, 9, 10
• Mozilla Firefox 3, 3.5, 3.6 till 18
• Apple Safari 3.2, 4.0, 5.0
• Google Chrome Latest Version
• Opera 9.6
