Which Android versions should I test on?

This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series Android

Android statistics chart

In the last Android statistics blog, I made the prediction that Android 7 would really take a larger market share. Obviously that was to be expected. We have seen Android 7 Nougat grow from 7.1% to 13.5% this month. It is not hard to predict that by November, Android Nougat will have reached a solid third place.

Do I really have to test on all those browser configurations? (Part 2)

This is part 2 of this article discussing the reasons why you should test your app or website on multiple browser configurations. Today we continue with browser functionality and the differences between devices.

Ideally, the way your product functions would be the same on all browsers and operating systems. However this is often not the case, and is another scenario in testing where the end user experience needs to be taken into account when writing test plans.

The various components that make up a website or application such as HTML, CSS styles, Javascript and page layouts need to be tested across different browsers. The functionality of Javascript and page layouts in particular vary from browser to browser, as they express varying capabilities when implementing different features determined by your developer’s code. Although browser compatibility is becoming standardised, the continued usage of older browsers that are no longer being developed inevitably means that some features of your website will not work properly on every browser. This does not necessarily matter, as long as the core information is available to as many users as possible.
