Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Whenever I redesign a website, I spend a lot of time manually checking whether the new website is still supported on all major browsers by opening the website on the corresponding browser.

What is a time-efficient way of testing cross browser compatibility?

There are some web services like Browser Stack for you pay a monthly fee and can test on lots of web browsers over lots of operating systems. It's a lot simpler than managing your own virtual machines. –  Brendon Dec 8 '13 at 12:23

The two approaches are:

  1. Install all the browsers that you can on the computers that you have.
  2. Sign up for a service that has all these installed for you and lets you access them. There are several available. I find that is it generally cost effective to do this rather than continually having to buy (and manage) machines just for testing. I personally use crossbrowsertesting.com
