Web Browser

Functionality of the Major Web Browsers

One of the most overlooked aspects of creating a web site is a lack of understanding that the different web browsers handle certain HTML features quite differently. Below is a table (courtesy ofWebMonkey) documenting many of the differences in the support of certain features by different web browsers. We at SlickRock understand the importance of not excluding potential customers purely because of the browser or computer platform they are using. We develop sites to be as functional as possible across many different browsers and computer platforms. We also anlayze the web traffic statistics specific to your site to better target future development of your site and to make the proper changes in line with the proper viewing audience to your site.
