Your designers and developers have created a fantastic front-end design, which you are delighted with, and your job now is “To test” it. Your heart begins to sink: Think of all the browsers, all the devices and all of the web pages you’ve got to test, not to mention the iterations and bug fixes. You need a front-end testing plan.
1. First of all, you should know, who are we testing for?
• You will need to understand your audience and how they will be consuming the website.
• Need to know, what are the most popular devices your audience uses?
• What operating system and browser combinations are most popular among your audience?
• What connection speeds do they have (3G, 4G, broadband/fibre)?
• How tech-savvy are they?
2. Points to remember, while testing:
• All content must be readable.
• All functionality must work.
• Deviation from approved Graphic design must be minimized.
• Navigation must work.
• Any degradation to presentation must not obscure content.
• Automated testing tools for visual regression
Reading what you should do is one thing and actually doing it quite another.
