The reality is that people won’t just come to your website, web application, or web page through popular web browsers found on their Windows machines and mobile devices. Some users opt for open source browsers, such as Firefox, and if you want them to have a positive experience with your website or web application, you should conduct open source browser testing to see how it performs. While automated testing can help work out some of the bugs in your design, it often takes real people to determine usability.
One meaningful cross-browser testing tool is crowdtesting. Crowdtesting involves harnessing the power of the crowd: Real people with real devices examining your product for bugs and usability. They use a wide variety of devices with different operating systems and different browsers, including open-source browsers, to provide your designers and developers with feedback.
