During web development, especially on the front-end, developers must test their code to see how it looks (pretty self-explanatory right?). When doing this, the developer will examine the website not just from their browser of choice, but from a multitude of browsers. This:
- Tests to see if all features are inter-operable, or have work arounds where necessary (e.g. the use of -webkit etc)
- Tests to see if the user experience is consistent throughout the site and across browsers.
I am currently in the process of developing a web application in PHP that my users are likely to access through the Steam overlay.
Usually, when unit testing, I will use the latest version of Chrome. Then, once a feature has been completed, I will perform an integration test across IE, Firefox, Chrome, Edge and the Steam Browser.
During the development of the application, which often entails adding, editing and testing user inputs and GUI features, should I perform unit tests within the Steam Browser?
Seen as though the Steam Browser uses old-Chrome, should I assume it will be alright until the integration test, or should I be focusing on it, or is there even a difference at all?
