Allgemein bekannt: Ihre Website sollte in so vielen mobilen Browsern wie möglich getestet werden. Das klingt allerdings einfacher, als es in der Praxis ist: Am Beispiel von Chrome einige Tipps und Fakten für effektives Browsertesting.

Weiter unten finden Sie ein Whitepaper mit best practises zum Thema. Auszüge:

"When Chrome isn’t Chrome"

"In this white paper, we’re going to take a good look at the mobile browser market with the aid of Akamai browser data. We will find that even though we start out with the knowledge that mobile browsers are complicated, it is even more complicated than we thought.

We’re going to examine many peculiarities of the browser market, and give some tips and tricks on setting up a decent browser detection module.

You want to know which browsers your site’s audience uses, since that will allow you to decide on which browsers to test. However, using browser detection in your actual production code is not a very good idea. Not only will rough browser detection fail to catch many of the subtle distinctions we’ll discuss below, but in almost all cases it’s the wrong solution to whatever your problem is, since it’s too coarse.

And if you’re looking for a good browser detection script, we can recommend WhichBrowser, which powers the HTML5 Test site. It is being kept up to date with the latest mobile browsers and devices. You can also try the WURFL detect, which is better at detecting devices than at detecting browsers."

Den Empfehlungen zu WhichBrowser und WURFL schließen wir uns übrigens an. Bei G&L kommen im Bereich Qualitätssicherung darüber hinaus Tools wie die Telerik UI suite und Selenium, Ghost Inspector oder CasperJS für automatisierte Tests zum Einsatz - and many more. Schwerpunkt bei uns ist dabei natürlich die Wiedergabe unterschiedlichster Video/Audio-Medienformate und Codecs.
