Web-based Testing Tool Automatically Reveals How Web Sites Look in Different Browsers

LEXINGTON, Mass., June 24, 2009 — Gomez, Inc. (, the leader in Web application experience management, today introduced a free Web-based tool that automatically tests how Web sites look in four commonly-used combinations of browsers and operating systems (OS), saving Web teams time and money. After simply entering a URL, the free Gomez Cross-Browser Compatibility Test returns screen captures of the Web page in each browser/OS combination, revealing content-rendering issues such as missing graphics, function buttons or text. The Gomez Cross-Browser Compatibility Test can be accessed at:

New, popular browsers like Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer 8 and Google Chrome use more client-side processing and have different ways of handling dynamic content such as JavaScript, increasing the risk of performance issues for Web pages and transactions. But testing Web application compatibility across every browser type, version and OS is time-consuming and expensive. Few organizations have the infrastructure or resources to build and maintain their own testing environment. Gomez’s new Cross-Browser Compatibility Test provides a simple, free, and on-demand way to identify content-rendering issues by testing any Web page on the following four frequently-used combinations of browsers/OS:

- Internet Explorer 6.0 on Windows XP
- Internet Explorer 7.0 on Windows XP
- Safari 3.2.1 on Macintosh OSX 10.5
- Safari 2.0 on Macintosh OSX 10.4

The Cross-Browser Compatibility Test is a free version of Gomez’s full cross-browser testing solution which automatically tests Web and mobile applications on over 500 browsers, OS and device combinations -- including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera browsers, Windows, Linux and Macintosh OS, and iPhone, Google Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile smartphones -- to ensure compatibility, functionality, and performance.

“Web pages can look and perform differently from one browser to another,” said Eric Schurr, Gomez’s SVP of Marketing. “In today’s economy, businesses can’t afford to risk losing even one customer or one dollar of revenue because their Web applications don’t work properly on a browser or mobile device. Gomez’s Cross-Browser Compatibility Test reduces this risk while also saving time and money.”
