In these past years, we have seen a tremendous increase in the number of websites and internet user. There are now around 1.9 Billion websites and around 3 billion users of the internet, which is almost half of the world’s population. You can find anything on the web from learning how to cook to make a website. People will find and view this content over and over.

Which has set us on one point that more users are viewing the websites from a different browser and devices and also raised a question of does your website look the same in every device and platform it is viewed upon.
What is Cross Brower Compatibility?

A web page is made up of coding in HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Every web developer favourite platform is the latest version of Google Chrome and Firefox. They develop the whole website on that browser and then upload it on the internet. But things aren’t that simple. Different browsers like Opera, Safari, IE, lower version of Firefox, etc. display HTML and CSS in a different way because every browser has a different rendering mechanism that processes and display the code on the screen of your devices. As a result, a website won’t look right or look slightly wrong when you view it from different browsers.

Foremost aim for any web developer is to provide all users with the same experience. If your website is not Cross Browser Compatible then your competitors will definitely benefit from it and will ultimately result in losing your customers to your competitors. You will be at a loss as having a beautiful website but not working same on every browser sucks. Many viewers won’t return to your website when it will not open in their browsers and potential customers won’t choose your company as they may not find your website reliable.

Now we have established the need for Cross-Compatibility, the next step is how to make a website cross browser compatible.If you are developing your website in HTML, CSS or JavaScript then you need to remember some point to have a perfect cross browser compatible website.

The web developer has built a website and it is running seamlessly on let’s say his favourite browser Chrome. Issues will occur when you decide to test it on other browsers like IE, Firefox, Safari, etc. You might notice that everything on your website that was working flawlessly before, now is not running the same on other browsers or giving errors.
