Browsers and devices

​End user browsing should support at least the following browsers, according to a graded scale A, and B.
 

The site is tested with A-grade browsers for:

  • Functionality (functionality e.g. navigation, forms etc. work as they should)
  • User interface (general UI layout is intact and everything is in its place)
  • Visual details (visual details are implemented as designed, the look and feel is “pixel perfect”)
  • Popular browser extension Firefox Adblock Plus
 

The site is tested with B-grade browsers for:

  • Functionality (functionality e.g. navigation, forms etc. work as they should)
  • User interface (general UI layout is intact and everything is in its place)
 

The number of supported browsers is limited for the following reasons:

  • Testing work grows quickly with the number of browsers to be supported, which increases costs and calendar time needed for testing.
  • Building testing environments for browsers on different platforms and versions is expensive and time consuming.
 
The number of end-users utilizing non-supported browsers is expected to be low.
 

A:

  • Chrome latest version
  • IE 11
  • Firefox latest version
  • Safari latest version
 

B:

  • Chrome the previous major version
  • Safari the previous major version
  • Firefox the previous major version
  • IE9
 

Devices:

  • iPhone 5 & 6
  • iPad
  • iPad Mini
  • Lumia 930 & 830
  • Samsung Galaxy S4
