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?

George

Hello George,

As you mentioned in your question, 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 testing of the Telerik and KendoUI controls. We also offer responsive testing by simulating mobile devices using the browser's device mode. Any feedback from you on this matter will be greatly appreciated.


Choosing the right testing 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 to check out Telerik TestStudio at http://www.telerik.com/teststudio. It supports cross browser testing through executing your automated tests against your browsers of choice, including responsive testing against different form factors. Supported browsers are Chrome, Firefox, Chrome Headless and Chromium-based Edge. You can read more about how Test Studio’s responsive testing capabilities at https://www.telerik.com/teststudio/automated-website-responsive-testing

All the best,
Atanas
