Top 10 Cross Browser Testing Tools in 2019 (Latest Ranking)

List of the latest and the best Cross Browser Testing Tools for your website Browser Compatibility Testing on different browsers and Operating Systems:

Cross Browser Testing can be the biggest pain for any Software Tester. But thanks to all Cross-browser Test tools available online which help in minimizing the testing efforts.

I've written this post focusing mainly for Software Testers and Designers for knowing various methods for browser testing.

THE BEST CROSS BROWSER TESTING TOOLS

There are many free and paid browser test tools available in the market. You need to select the browser compatibility test tool depending on your needs.

If cross-browser testing is a critical part of your web project then you must allocate some considerable time, resources and budget for testing your website on different web browsers.

Cross-browser Testing Checklist:

What we need to test under browser testing:

1) CSS validation
2) HTML or XHTML validation
3) Page validations with and without JavaScript enabled
4) Ajax and JQeury functionality
5) Font size validation
6) Page layout in different resolutions
7) All images and alignment
8 ) Header and footer sections
9) Page content alignment to center, LHS or RHS
10) Page styles
11) Date formats
12) Special characters with HTML character encoding
13) Page zoom-in and zoom-out functionality

And obviously, you will have to repeat these tests on:
14) Different Operating Systems like Windows, Linux, and Mac
15) Different browsers (with different versions) like Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari, and Opera.

The premium browser testing tools can be a good option for projects having browser dependent functionality. But for most of the projects, free tools are sufficient to verify cross-browser functionality.

  1. simply super!
    great compilation, really helpful for me.

    We manual verify website in different browsers which are mostly used by our customers and we get that data from google analytics.

    • thanks Poorab
      Actually it took me almost 4 hours to compile this list. I personally used most of the free tools and tried free trial versions of paid tools. So no doubt this is the best comprehensive list to check for cross browser testing tools.

      Getting browser data from Google analytic can work to some extent. But it’s always safer to cross check website in all major browsers available in market.

  2. @ jebb
    All tools come with their own advantages and disadvantages. It depends on individual requirements whether to rely on those or not. I agree for in-depth browser compatibility tests, free tool is not a good choice.

  3. When you want to check more than just how the page renders and look at static JPGs of it, for example testing JavaScript functionality then there is NO substitute, certainly in the case of IE, for VMWare images for each copy. For other browsers such as Opera and Firefox then side by side installs are straight forward without the need for VMware images – unless of course you’re also testing other OSs…

  4. Good Good & Very Good article, but its copied, because i have already read this 5 months ago, & now u just copy edited it & then pasted.

    sorry sir i m not criticize,just sharing my experience & now i do not remember that link :(

    one thing more u can use above tools very well but these are not 100% reliable,because u have to manually check each & every page(putting URL).
    so i think manual testing is much better than all above tools.
    Thank You

  5. @SJ:- very well said SJ, and another thing is that you cannot preview your webpage at high or low resolution i.e. 95% or 90 etc.

  6. @Vijay: Man You seem very clever….lol
    But finally i need your help…currently i m working on a downloading portal with strong SEO & content…plz help me how to test a website which having a 100% influence of SEO..& how to test this kind of site..Manual or Automation.

    Waiting for your feedback.

  7. Hi guys ,

    I need ur help ,

    I want to know abt DejaGNU tool , what are the things which should take in mind to take this tool for live project. Its adv & DIs ADV & suggest me similar tools.

    Thanks in ADvance. !!!

  8. i am purely in software development, but i want to switch to software testing. Is it possible. I do know about software testing, with no practical experience. Can i do that????

  9. Have you looked at Selenium? I’m not sure if it is truly valuable as I have only used it with Firefox, but I would think that if you could output that script, you could tweak it to run with other browsers. I use it for Sanity checks ALL the time.

  10. My 2 cents in this forum. Appriciate the effort of compiling the details. Evenif it was copied, I don’t mind as ultimately it’s a knowledge spread.
    My concern here is, most of this free tools are remote machines and there is definately a serurity risk when you want to test interactive web sites. For example we don’t want to publish our sales web site(having senstitive data) to outside virtual computers
    The solution to this is to use paid tools. Now those paid tools also can give you the snap shot resuls only. What about the pages having reference data from somewhere else. For example your page have search utility and the search results can be anything? How to test the browser compatibity for different kind of results?
    Now the solution of above problem is to use scripting tools(Test Automation tool) it means Actually we are looking for combination of Automation scripting tool and Browser compatibilty tool where we record the cases and run the scripts with different browser. Again we have an issue that the scipt recorded with IE can not be run in Other browser and vise versa. Any thoughts?

  11. Hello Poorab,
    can you please explain ” we get that data from google analytics.” how does we get dat from google analystics , i know the GA ( google analytics) I am working on that ,

    thanks,

    Jaya

  12. Great site. I also think open source testing tools based on Selenium project are great for cross browser testing. I have tried PushToTest’s tool called TestMaker, and found it to be really useful.

  13. It’s a very good information to the test engineers .

    Thanks for providing information.and also can u provide manual testing

  14. Hi,

    My project is a web based project and it supports for different browsers: IE(6,7,8 & 9) and Mozila Firefox and operating Systems: WinXP, WinVista, Win2003 & Win7.

    I am doing compatibility testing manually. This time i have gone through some free tool for this type of testing in the website. It is difficult for me to decide whic his good for our project as i am new to all the tools.

    Can anyone please help me out of this problem.
    Thanks in advance
    Contact: amitamohapatra@gmail.com

  15. great and very nice piece of work.
    Very nice compilation.

    I am making a application to monitor web traffic and need to make a report on the scalability and performance of the UI .

    Can you please help me with the parameters i should test and points which should be considered in testing a UI which should display a lot of data.

    contact: saral.gaurav@gmail.com

  16. The current approach thatw e employ for the cross browser testing is that, we employ OATS on the test suite and then do the regression testing in just one browser. Then we do just link validation of the application in various other browsers, for which we employ several link checker tools such as the xenu tool.Request your inisghts on the adopted approach.
