Browser testing

I had quite a stressful day wondering about conversion rate at Diet Chef. Things seemed to have gone wrong and due to the amount of traffic we get on a daily basis it is quite hard to isolate the problems.

I jumped to Google and asked for a browser testing tool and came across Browserstack.com a nice little tool for responsive, live and automated testing.

Within a minutes we had isolated the offending browser and pushed a fix to the server, conversion came back on line pretty quickly.

The world is becoming much more complex with browsers, phones, tablets etc, but the rules are pretty simple – test everything and make sure you test again.
