BrowserCaps Tests

 

Want an easy demo of the way BrowserCaps operates? Test this website on the browser you are currently using to access this webpage.

The test will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. It consists of a series of questions about HTML features. You'll be shown a snippet of HTML code and asked how closely your browser's rendition of that code matches the description of its desired behavior. You have the option of taking the entire test suite or of zeroing in on features that are of particular interest to you.

You also have the option of proposing a new test feature that you think would be of importance to the greater BrowserCaps community. You'll be asked to provide your opinion of the proposed test's essential significance. You'll be asked to supply links to appropriate HTML documentation for the feature you're surveying or to its vendor documentation as well.

Additionally, you'll be able to identify your specific browser with a unique browser identification string.

Is Your Website Accessible to All Your Prospective Customers?

You may think your website is customer-friendly if it supports the latest versions of popular browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer.

This is simply not the case.

As many as 30 percent of all Internet users are accessing the World Wide Web from computers that use older operating systems that are not set up to support the latest browsers. These tests will help you make your website accessible to this potential customer segment.
