Due to the increasing popularity of smartphones and tablet computers in recent years, more and more people are accessing the web using mobile devices and expecting an experience as polished and usable as the desktop experience. As a result, it is now more important than ever that web designers, developers and user experience experts take into account these users when creating their websites. This can be achieved by creating a single responsive site or distinct desktop and mobile sites.
And when something is developed, it needs to be tested! A recent project at Auros included mobile-specific versions of a client’s main, desktop website.
The Auros test department had the task of testing both versions of the site. Typically, we test on the most popular desktop browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and so on. This includes different versions of a browser e.g. IE9, IE8 and IE7.
