ShopVisible Breaks Browser Incompatibility
5/22/2009 10:38:00 AM
Here at ShopVisible we test sites in various web browsers to ensure client satisfaction and optimal web performance for our eCommerce customers. Sure a given site looks and functions flawlessly in FireFox or Google Chrome but will it adapt to changes and incompatibilities in things like divergent versions of Internet Explorer? Is IE6 the same as IE7 or 8 even? The answer is no...And thanks to the ShopVisible QA processes, our clients experience fluid and seamless browser performance in all varying web browsers.

Recently a Practical eCommerce piece on Microsoft's new "Web SuperPreview" software examined this browsing conundrum. Armando Roggio notes that "[IE] has always been a problem as designers were forced to choose between widely accepted Internet standards and what would work in IE. The problem has been exacerbated by the complexity of designers having to maintain various generations of IE on a single computer."

While Microsoft has created an "Expression WebSuperPreview for IE" in order to function as a "visual debugging tool that makes it easier to migrate your web sites from [IE6] to [IE 7 or 8]," the ShopVisible design team can also strategically run through websites testing and troubleshooting these browsing inaccuracies.

The problem with browser disjunction: "Most web browsers are quick to push updates to the masses...But IE is released in a herky jerky fashion, with one generation of IE baring little or no resemblance to its predecessor." There are still web users out there using IE versions 5.5-8, meaning a "designer must code for at least three different [IE] browser that behave nothing alike." Most machines cannot support multiple versions of IE but the ShopVisible team does...We test, retest and succeed. The Microsoft package, "SuperPreview," solves this problem by permitting techies and designers to simultaneously view pages in IE 6, 7, and 8.
