Web testing is a software testing practice to test the websites or web applications for potential bugs. It’s a complete testing of web-based applications before making live.

A web-based system needs to be checked completely from end-to-end before it goes live for end users.

The UI design and functionality are the captains of website testing. 

Functionality testing

Test for – all the links in web pages, database connection, forms used for submitting or getting information from the user in the web pages, Cookie testing etc.

Compatibility testing:

Compatibility of your website is a very important testing aspect. See which compatibility test to be executed:

  • Browser compatibility
