Building for different browsers

Just a quick reminder that it is very important when building web-based systems and legal extranets to be sure that they can be used by a broad cross-section of internet users.

Some basic tips are:

  • Test your application to confirm it operates within both Internet Explorer and Firefox (not to mention Google Chrome and Safari).

  • Be sure it works back a few browser revisions ago (e.g. not all users will have the latest versions of all browsers.

  • Try to avoid having your application require browser plug-ins (whenever possible).
