Accessibility of the website can be made with website testing. Testing helps in the monitoring and testing of your website. Security of the website will completely rely on website security testing.
Different techniques involved in the Web Application testing are as follows:
- Functionality testing:
The checks performed during the functionality testing are:
- Verification of Data Integrity
- Verification of workflow
- To perform negative testing, wrong inputs are to be given
- Checking the validation of all the fields
- Verification of invalid redirects or dead page
- Usability Testing:
Usability testing involves
- Checking of user intuition
- Checking the content
- Testing the controls and navigation
- Cross Browser Testing:
Cross-browser testing is the practice of ensuring that web sites and web applications you create a job in several acceptable web browsers.
- Compatibility Testing:

- Browser Compatibility
- Compatibility with various devices like mobile, notebook etc.,
- UI/UX Testing:
UI/UX testing involves testing the performance and functionality with the help of automated coded UI tests.
