Frequently Asked Questions
Why is it critical to test websites on Safari Browser?
Safari has a 15% global market share and is the default browser for all Apple devices like Mac, iPhone, and iPad. In the US, the Safari browser has a 32% market share (as of 2019). Given this, it becomes very vital to test websites on Safari Browser.
What is a Safari Emulator?
A Safari Emulator is a software program that replicates the behavior of the Safari Browser on a laptop or a desktop. Developers or QAs use it during various stages of software development to optimize their web-applications for the Safari browser.
Why do QAs opt for testing on Safari Emulators?
After Chrome, Safari is the second most popular browser with 18% of the total browser market share worldwide. Naturally, QAs prefer to test their web-applications using Safari Emulator in order to cater to Safari users. Do note that this is not the same as testing on real devices, with Safari browsers installed in them.
Are online Safari Emulators reliable?
Safari Emulators mimic the functionality of an original Safari browser. However, they can not provide accurate test results as they act as virtual machines and run slower as compared to the actual Safari Browser. In some cases, teams cannot mimic some interactions or exact CSS support. As a result, an end-user might face a bug that remained unexplored while testing on emulators.
It is highly recommended for teams to test their sites on real Safari browsers that are installed on real mobile or desktop devices. Doing this ensures that teams are leaving no stone unturned to deliver the best possible user experience.
