Having a website is a necessary part of today’s business world. They say if you don’t have a website, your business doesn’t exist. This has never been more true. How many of your clients have discovered your company through a Google search? Google is the new Yellow Pages.
But presence in search engines is only half the battle. To convert your visitors into paying customers, you must have a well functioning and easy to use website.
Website testing is needed to face browser fragmentation
Few website operators are aware of a common problem known as browser fragmentation. Did you know that your website may work flawlessly in one browser, but not at all in another? There are many instances of websites functioning great in all browsers except Internet Explorer 8 or 9. Or in specific versions of Google Chrome.
Part of the problem is that browsers use different rendering engines. In layman’s terms, this means that the software that displays your website in browsers is different in certain browsers. This, of course, has an impact on how your website appears for your visitors.
And sadly, this is about to get worse as Google has recently announced that they will create their own rendering engine, different from the one it had used up to now, and different from the one most other browsers are currently using.
Website testing is essential to maintain your company’s credibility
One of our privileges as website testing providers here at the Crowdsourced Testing company is that we get to see everything that can go wrong with a website if it contains errors. Spelling mistakes are very common and they are a simple example of what can have a negative impact on your visitors’ perception of your brand.
Broken links are another type of issue you most certainly have encountered at one point or another. Many companies have created funny “404 page not found” error messages to lessen the pain of stumbling upon a broken link, but the real result is that if your visitors do not find what they are looking for on your website, they simply move on.
Our website testing services
To succeed as a website operator, you must ensure that your website works flawlessly for all your visitors. This used to be a long and tedious task that involved manually testing your website in every single browser and on every device at your users’ disposal.

This is particularly useful if your current visitors are reporting issues on your site or if you are about to launch a new website and would like feedback quickly as to its compatibility with current browsers.
We curate a large network of expert software testers from around the world who can conduct exploratory tests (using your website as any regular user would) or test case driven tests (based on specific instructions which you provide) to help you ensure that your site works flawlessly on all of the devices from which your users may be visiting.
