Market leader addresses multi-platform browser compatibility in the enterprise
London, 6th October 2011 – ChangeBASE, the world leader in automated application compatibility testing, remediation and conversion today announced the launch of its Mozilla Firefox plug-in for AOK Browse-It, the company’s award winning browser and web application compatibility testing and reporting module.
Organisations are no longer standardising on a single browser for their environment, as enterprises are now deploying a multi-browser approach in the same way they do with platforms and applications. Firefox is the second most-favoured browser in the enterprise next to Internet Explorer, holding approximately 26% market share. By deploying a multi-browser approach, organisations can provision a more versatile IT environment. As Firefox in particular has been developed in open source, it enables organisations to utilise the browser across the tablets, smart phones and other devices which now shape the enterprise IT landscape.
“Launching the AOK Browse-It Firefox plug-in is yet another differentiator for AOK and ChangeBASE,” commented Greg Chief Technology Architect, ChangeBASE. “By deploying multi-browser environments, organisations are enabling staff to access corporate web applications from any device. The need to ensure that the browser chosen is compatible with those applications is essential.”
The AOK Browse-It for Firefox plug-in ensures Firefox compatibility for web applications. It quickly and accurately identifies the six key areas of compatibility including;
• Proprietary Internet Explorer calls and functions
• Non-standard HTML functions and event calls
• Non-compliant CSS functions and calls
• DOM model quirks and non supported functions
• Plug-in manager component and configuration compatibility
“Today’s enterprises operate in a multi-faceted world. It is imperative that every application, be it native, web or virtualised, is compatible and working correctly on whatever platform the user chooses,” continues Greg Lambert. “Now with AOK Browse-It for Firefox, organisations can increase their efficiency, become more cost-effective and can ultimately help users to be more productive.”
AOK Browse-It for Firefox will be generally available this quarter and will be shipped via the ChangeBASE partner network.
