How to Easily Test Your Website on Multiple Browsers

Browsershots Browser Testing

In last week’s TechTips, I provided you with a chart of the market share for different Internet browsers. Google Chrome’s browser commands a 60% market share. I’ve included the chart again below.

This chart got me thinking that it is essential for you to make sure your website displays correctly on multiple browsers. It would help if you made sure the pages of your website render correctly on at least the top three Internet browsing platforms.

You could install each browser on both a Windows and Apple computer so you can load your website and test all of the pages. However, this is at best a cumbersome process.

Your Website Security is Important

Two recent events prompt today’s post.

website security

First, in the last few weeks, I have come across a significant number of agency websites that have yet to add a security certificate. Website security is especially important if you have any forms that collect personal information — like a “request a quote” form.

The second event was an article I read describing how Google will be strengthening Chrome’s security with the next release. I realize that many agencies continue to use Internet Explorer, but the world — by an extensive margin — uses Chrome. The graphic below provides an indication of browser market share globally. Most people coming to your website are using the Google Chrome browser.

This next release will also “not trust” older Symantec security certificates (pre-June 2016). Access to the website will not be blocked. However, it will pop up warnings that will be annoying and might discourage your prospects from entering your site.

How to Use Copernic to Find the Needle in the Haystack

We are creating more digital information today than ever. Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PDF proposals, pictures, video — all are piling up on our hard drives. The trick is finding a document when you need it. “I wonder… in what folder would I have stored that document?”

Copernic Desktop Search

This question is all too common. The more information we have, the harder it is to find that one piece of information we need right now.

Searching for an email in Outlook is better than it used to be, but still not great. The Windows 10 operating system also has a much better search, but still not great.

That’s why Copernic Desktop Search is such a great tool.
