How do we perform website testing?
Website testing comes down to a wide variety of verifications and cases. Depending on the type of website that is to be tested, the testing process usually covers visual elements and links verification, but it can also cover more complex elements like account creation, shopping, payment processing, back-end and content management tools.
Also, with the increasing popularity of tablets and mobile handsets, responsive website testing is becoming more and more important. Different desktop browsers are also used in every testing session to ensure that the experience is optimal on all the platforms available to your users.
Why is website testing important for your business?
Your website is the online identity of your product or company. When a user comes across your website, he is essentially standing at your front door. Testing a website is about making sure that the architecture is solid in every possible situation, whether the website is accessed from a mobile browser, the latest version of the most popular browser, or that browser that tech neophytes will use because it’s shipped with the computer they just bought.
Does your website features a custom tool to playback video content? Does it need to be frequently updated with news and content?
A regular round of testing for a website generally covers 5 different browsers: Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge and Safari on both Windows and Mac computers.
If your website is going to be accessed on mobile devices, then Safari mobile, Android native browser and Chrome for Android need to be added to that list.
Have you thought that your user could have a slow connection? Due to the easy accessibility of internet and browsers, any type of customers can access your website.
Depending on your target demographics, you might want to perform website testing on slower connections. Maybe that login area is crashing or that nice video loop eats up the limited mobile bandwidth of your customers.
In the end, whether you only use your website as a blog and a banner for your company, or you are developing the next social media with an incredibly huge amount of content sharing, it’s the easiest way for the customer to get in touch with what you have to offer.
