15. Compatibility Check

The site once online, would be viewed by viewers with different types of communication devices and operating systems.

The site should be compatible with all these devices and operating systems. Resolution Check Different users and computers have different resolutions. The site may be out of view if the resolution is decreased. The site format may even break down and become disorganized with some resolutions. Hence resolution should be checked at least for some of the most common resolution settings. Below is a list of some of the devices for which compatibility check is made:

  • Desktops
  • Laptops
  • PDA
  • Mobile Phones

Browser Compatibility Browser compatibility is another important step which has to be taken care off. CSS specifications and some HTML tags would not be compatible with all browsers. Hence, the site should be tested in all major browsers.Some of the common browsers where the compatibility is checked:

  • Internet Explorer
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Netscape
  • Safari (Macintosh)
