We use different browsers to view many websites. In order to view your website in different websites you have to check the browser compatibility issues. Do you know what the reason for the difference in the website in different browsers? This is because the visualization of a website depends on the following variables. They are
- Browser Difference
- Operating System
- Display Resolution
As a matter of fact this is one of the major issues in Website display non-uniformity. Every browser contains a “layout engine” that interprets the website’s CSS code and changes it into a visual representation of a web page.
“Layout Engine”-is software that reads marked up languages as input and converts that into formatted data like CSS, XSL etc. then displays the formatted information on the screen of the device that is used. Each browser provides the code uniquely so only website’s show varies in different browsers. As the Resolution you may produce your web pages with Cross-browser compatibility by creating it with Current website Standards.
The second factor that plays a major role on visibility of website on a screen is Operating system. In each operating system the code is determined differently. Moreover different operating systems interpret text boxes and the buttons on forms entirely different. On a personal computer, submit buttons will be square and flat, on Mac the submit buttons are shaded ovals with gradient. Each OS has its own bugs and grooves. Use percentage rather than pixel. Also always make sure that your code is valid. Make use of the W3C validations for checking errors. Great code really helps.
Display Resolution is third important factor on website visibility. as a result of On high resolution monitor, all the things will be appear smaller as well as no scrolling is required whereas on low resolution monitor all the things will be appear larger so lots of scrolling is required to look at the entire web page. However, usually the common and current display resolutions suggested are 1280×1024 or 1024×768 pixels.
Your monitor’s display resolution settings will affect the appearance of a webpage. In fact pages with lower resolution will not appear optimally.
A user’s browser type, installed fonts and operating systems all have an impact on how a webpage displays. Furthermore, Some of the manifestations and issues are more technical and specific.
Websites are designed, or should be, with what are referred to as “font stacks.” What this does is produce a default font for display; if a specific user doesn’t have that font loaded on his/her computer, the display defaults to succeeding font in the stack, and so forth. In addition the way the stack matches up to the computer’s fonts determines how a website will be seen on that device.
Tips to make your website look same on all browsers
- Write the code with no stray tags or unclosed comments.
- The coding should be such that it should meet with HTML and CSS standards.
- W3C validations make your website more functional and reachable and support them to execute well on all browsers.
- Enabling your webpage to be resized for all browsers works finer on different platforms, from handheld desktop to handheld devices.
