Testing Websites with Various Browsers


What browsers and resolutions should I test my website with?


As of early 2008, we test each website we build with the latest release of Internet Explorer, FireFox, and Safari. Sometimes we also include Opera but not usually. Also, if desired, we sometimes test with older versions of browsers but not usually. The minimum resolution we test "regular" websites is 1024x768 (and higher). We no longer support 800x600.

I was also asked recently, why we no longer develop websites for 800x600 resolution. The reason is quite simply that according to w3schools.com, as of January 2008 86% of the web surfers are using a resolution of 1024x768 or higher.
