By Manish RawatWho would want to make a browser specific website? A website- which will funnel its visitors by itself hence decreasing the probability of the website to be accessed by many. Website needs to be browser friendly, at first place, if it needs to get accessed by majority. This becomes the major concern of the designers when they code their design. They try every thing to make their website run swiftly on every web browser, available.

What give rise to non browser compatibility of a website?

Invalid (X)HTML or CSS gives rise to bugs. A W3Cvalidated site can be easily made browser compatible. Validate your (X)HTML code with the W3C validator and your CSS file with the W3C CSS validator.

Now you need to check your website in all browsers to see if it is working fine or not. After checking, make a note of all the bugs. Of course your installed browser is not enough to carry out the compatibility test as there are many other browsers available too.

To carry out this drill efficiently Browsershot.org can be used. This website shows the screen shots of your website on different browsers. You have to just type in your url and leave it for some time.

Analyze all the screen shots you find and make sure to jot them down.

People preference changes with time. Same happens with browser choice. There are so many browsers available and it is not at all possible that everyone is using each browser. Browser usability preference can be watched out or can be generalized; Different geographical areas have different preference of browser usability. There are few other sites which can be brought into reference such as w3schools.com.

If you have couple of visitors coming through some particular browser and your website is not able to make on it, then you can certainly afford to leave that browser. As it will hardly make any difference.

Now you are well aware of the bugs and you need to look out for the CSS attributes or the HTML code that are causing this problem. If you still find the cause either search the solution in webmaster forum or post a topic yourself. You can also reach up to some reliable company providing such service.

Now the final step is to fix the issue. This could be done by fixing the code that is causing the problem. Write the code again for the specific browser. You could find many CSS hacks over internet to do that.

Making site cross browser compatible is not difficult but necessary.
