Cross browser compatible websites

Posted on September 7, 2018 at 1:41 pm

When developing a website it is vital that it displays and works correctly across multiple browsers. With more and more people using the internet to search for products they want or companies that offer services they require, it is imperative that your website is up to scratch.

Over time browsers get updated and code that may have worked years ago may no longer be supported. This can cause layout issues and functionality issues on older sites or sites that have not been checked properly before going live.

It is important that your website is built with all different browsers in mind and not just the one or two that you or your client may use. A huge number of people are using smart devices such as phones or tablets to browse the internet, so your website needs to also be compatible with these browsers and the different screen sizes.

There are websites that allow you to input yor web URL and it will test its compatibility on the different browsers and versions although these are not always that accurate. You cannot program a site that will work on really old versions of a browser but making sure that it is compatible with all the latest versions is a must.
