Top 4 Cross Browser Testing Tools

Cross Browser Testing

Cross Browser testing helps test the compatibility of Website or Web Application with all the intended browsers. In Cross browser testing, we check  if  all functionalities, features and UI elements of the application are working as intended in different browsers. The application should be compatible with the latest browser versions and there should be no issues related to Alignment/design, Functionality, JavaScript, AJAX and JQuery.
