Understanding Cross Browser Compatibility in Website DesignCross Browser compatibility is the bane of website designers!
You must be aware that there are numerous browsers used by people for surfing the internet. Some of the commonly used browsers are Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, Opera, Netscape, and so on. Now, if you observe carefully, you will find that some websites look quite different in different web browsers.
Let’s understand the technicality behind this phenomenon. Each browser parses a web code in a different way. A good web design aims to give a uniform look to the website, viewed from any web browser. Thus, a good website should be viewable in its full functionality on any web browser. This is called cross-browser compatibility.
