Cross Browser Cross Platform Testing with QARA Enterprise

With so many browsers and platforms being used today, software application testing can no longer be confined to one or two browsers or platforms alone. While you have Windows, mac, Opera, Safari, IE and Firefox as the major browsers to consider for web application testing, you have Android, iOS, Windows and Blackberry, along with their versions, for mobile applications. Cross browser, cross platform testing can involve a lot of repetitive test case executions, which makes it next to impossible with manual testing. However, with new age test automation tools, it has become easier than ever to ensure that your application functions seamlessly across every browser and platform out there.

Need for Cross Browser / Cross Platform Testing

The testing process of any software application cannot be considered complete unless it has been tested for compatibility across the different browsers and platforms available in the market today. Cross browser / cross platform testing is a feature that allows you to test your application under different combinations of browsers, platforms, operating systems and their versions. This eliminates the need to write multiple scripts, one for each browser. Given below are some reasons why you need cross browser/cross platform testing:

  • An application’s performance on one browser or platform cannot be an indicator of its performance on the others.
  • Developing and maintaining separate tests for each browser and platform can be a mammoth task.
  • Executing separate test cases for each browser or platform, and their multiple versions, can be immensely time-consuming and is not recommended.
  • It’s important to ensure that all your users get the desired experience from your application, irrespective of the device, browser or platform they are using.
