    Hi All, Looking for some information.

    I now have a site up and running using KendoUI and I am getting reports about problems with different browsers. I do my initial testing using Crome and IE9, then I try to test on different version of IE and it's browser/document modes and compatibility view, plus firefox....
    Then add in mobile devices and it get rather difficult to manage. Plus have to get all the hardware/software configurations to test with.

    Right now I am working on a problem with IE8 in compatibility view (or is it not in compatibility view, because I have to rely on user's reports) where the KundoUI Datepicker is not working.

    My question is: What tool(s)/methods are being used to test a page/site on the various browsers and variants of browsers?
    I found one site (crossbrowsertesting.com) that will take screen shots using a number of different browsers. But I need more then that. For example: I need to select a date from a date picker drop-down and verify that it's work on all configurations.

    Any help?

    Hello George,

    As you mentioned below, cross-browser/cross-platform testing is complex and difficult to manage task. It depends on many factors – the time and resources available, primary target platform, interface of the application, target audience etc. On our side we perform cross-browser and cross –platform testing of the KendoUI controls. We also test on different mobile devices. Any feedback from you on this matter will be greatly appreciated.
    Choosing the right tools and the best practices is a decision you have to make on your own, as you best know what will suit your application testing needs. We recommend you to check out Telerik TestStudio at http://www.telerik.com/automated-testing-tools. It supports running automated tests on different browsers as well as mobile devices.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
