Considering the amount of time everyone spends online today, it is funny that many people still don’t know what a web browser is, even though they use it every day.

The following video is a questionnaire conducted by Google while promoting their browser Chrome, and it shows that many people don’t know what a browser is, or they confuse a browser with a search engine. Only a few people answered correctly.

Multi-Browser Testing

Being a web developer for some time, the first rule in developing a good web application is to test the appearance and the usability of the application (or the web site). When I started developing my first web application, I was heavily using Internet Explorer as my favored browser, and almost everyone I know as well. Mozilla Firefox did not exist yet, and Netscape was losing ground to IE. These factors combined made me unconsciously (and unfortunately) target my web application towards IE users. The pages were full of VBscript code, and other IE-specific functionality that would not work on any other browser. At that time, it was fine, and no one complained.
