It is also know as portability testing. it is used whether our application build is customer expected software.

IE stands for internet explorer. we can test the application by using this automation.

Compatibility testing is done when the total testing is over for the product. It is done to check if the environment specified by the clients is portable or not. So that the software gives no error in the realtime.

COMPATABILITY TESTING: THE TESTING PROCESS WITH ABILITY OF TESTING TWO OR MORE SYSTEMS EXCHANGE THE INFORMATION IN THE CASE IF THIS THE NEWLY DEVELOPED S/W REPLACES THE ALREADY WORKING S/W.THE THE ACCES SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT COMPARABILITY PROBLEMS BETWEEN NEW S/W AND OTHER PROGRAMS

In simple terms compatible testing is testing whether software is compatible with other elements of a system with which it should operate, e.g. browsers, Operating Systems, or hardware. thats means to check how compatible it with the changing environment.

In case some case, a web site behaves fine when working on Internet explore but it shows exceptional behaviour when worked with Firefox. Images and the text dont appears on the pages properly, sometimes whole layout of the page got disturbed on Firefox.

Browser compatibility testing is basically ensuring that a website / web application renders the same way on common browsers. For example, a website that may be accessed from the Mac ONLY, needs to bother about FireFox and Safari. IE compatibility is not really required. But a site that should be completely cross-platform has to adhere to certain W3C standards, and render identically on IE and Firefox, and if the site is REALLY cross-browser compatible, then render well on (currently) less-common browsers such as Netscape, Mozilla, Safari, Opera etc.In order to ensure full compatibility, a tester would have to go through the complete suite of test-cases on EACH browser. If the complete suite passes on a particular browser, then he can rest assured that it is compatible with that specific browser.If, on the other hand, he runs into a bug that can be reproduced only on a specific browser, but works perfectly on other browsers, it's not a bug in code, but instead a lack of cross-browser compatibility.

Compatibility testing will be done before project going to deploying in the market, the higher authority people will do this testing, they are testing the application with using different Browser and test it is working Proper manner or not this is Called compatibility testing (or) the application comes under only mobile application they are tested on different version like IOS, Android, Windows

When I am talking about compatibility testing on various browser or browser version. This will be done before acceptance testing or Alpha testing to ensure my product or application was supporting on this many version or this many browser and qualify the product.
Majorly this will identify the look and feel issues, which was majorly validate and fix during this test.
