In this lecture, our instructor Candyce Mairs demonstrates how browsers are different through Google analytics--how you can view user data and statistics; this is important information to determine how you address your audience and the devices they use.
The toughest part of the web designers job is to determine which browsers and versions should be used for testing as you build a website and how to deal with these browser differences
If you have a present website, be sure to look over any analytics that are available for your site in order to determine what browsers your visitors are using
We are going to look over an example of web analytics for cmairscreate.com so you can get an idea of the type of information that can be gathered about your users
Once you have an idea of your audience and their needs, you can determine what browsers you should be using to test your website as you build it
Mac users must have a way to view pages using various versions of Internet Explorer (IE) which requires access to either windows itself on the Mac system or windows machines for testing
You need to have some type of windows/IE testing environment
Many companies I work with are using IE8, I do not find many still needing to use IE7 so I target back to IE8
