You may have noticed sometimes that a website doesn’t work in one browser but does so perfectly in the other. The reason for this is that websites aren’t magically compatible with multiple browsers, they have to be checked and ensured that they are so. For this reason, there are tools to check if your website works properly and consistently and without compromising on quality. This is done by entering your site’s URL and then multiple screenshots of the page from multiple browsers are provided to you. This is important as you may lose customers if your browsing experience is poor. Surely you may want to do this manually, but using a tool not only saves you money and all the head-ache, it saves you a lot of time. Here are some the best free cross browsing testing tools:
1. Browserling: Browserling uses real browsers instead of fake ones to test your site. They also provide live interaction sessions and not just screenshots, with which you can interact with browsers as if they were installed on your computer. With their SSH tunnels, you can choose to reverse-proxy your local host. Also, all connections between your site and Browserling are SSL encrypted which means that you can be safely anonymous. It also finds design errors and sends you bug reports. Its free plan includes limited 3-minute sessions, supports only Internet Explorer 9, Windows Vista and 1024×768 resolution. For access to unlimited sessions, support for all browsers, operating systems, custom screen resolutions, SSH tunnels and analysis, switch to the paid plans which start at $19/month.
