The Web and where it’s going

  1. Internet access across the world is increasing at a rapid pace. The change is especially noticeable with mobile devices. Many people have no fixed-line access to the web, instead relying on their mobile device. Web sites and web apps are being used across a wider range of software and hardware than ever before.

  2. In order to provide the best product to users and clients, it’s necessary to test across a wide range of platforms. Small screen devices, with patchy network connectivity are the most exciting and the most challenging of these. Mobile Operating System and browser emulators offer a reasonable way of testing layout, but can suffer from errors or differences in performance and behaviour. The best way of testing is to get hands-on and use the site as your users will: on actual devices.
