Websites and Web Applications are built for a specific purpose. What is the use of building a web page and hosting a survey, if it does not capture and record the survey answers accurately? For example, how can students attend courses or exams if the online registration forms on their education provider's website do not function well? Or imagine this scenario, when a glitch in the shopping cart of an e-commerce website makes prospective buyers eschew the site. Thus, we see the need to ensure that the web product being built serves the purpose that it is being built for.

Website Quality Assurance

What is Quality Assurance?

Quality Assurance is the process of ensuring a match between functionality of the website/web products and requirements/specifications of the clients. In the context of a website, quality assurance is a comprehensive examination of a website for issues such as bugs, glitches or broken links, which affect the user’s experience on the site much before the user faces these issues.

Types of Quality Assurance

Quality Assurance can be:

  1. Live testing done by actually running the website in simulations on multiple browsers and operating systems.
  2. Checking the design of the website in different browsers using static screenshots.
  3. In-development testing, where the testing of each aspect of the website happens as it is being built.
  4. Testing the website on actual browsers, with different operating systems and on various devices.


Benefits of Quality Assurance

Benefits of Quality Assurance:

Quality Assurance is an indispensable part of the web development process. The benefits of stringent quality assurance are:

  1. QA helps the testers know whether the website meets the client specifications.
  2. Quality Assurance ensures that the website runs smoothly, without any bugs or glitches. This minimizes the loss of users/clients due to frustration or errors.
  3. QA ensures that the content on the website is correct, up to date and consistent.
  4. QA is needed to check whether the webpage is optimized for different types of web browsers or for mobile devices.
  5. QA helps eliminate broken links, inaccurate content and empty webpages, which in turn boosts your ranking and therefore, the web traffic.
  6. If a website has special features such as forms, surveys, payment gateways, pop-up boxes, automated emails for events such as new subscriptions, etc., QA ensures that these are working well before the site goes live.
