Not all web browsers are equal, and not all of them are perfectly compatible with all code. Some companies who support these technologies intentionally refuse to solve incompatibilities that ensure them continued business. Unfortunately, this means you need to do more work to make sure your code is supported by all browsers.

A brief on the technologies our engineering team supports:
Did you know…?

Web browser engines that your website must support
Not all web browsers are equal, and not all of them are perfectly compatible with all code. Some companies who support these technologies intentionally refuse to solve incompatibilities that ensure them continued business. Unfortunately, this means you need to do more work to make sure your code is supported by all browsers. Not us!
Since 50% of ecommerce revenue comes from mobile devices, it’s more important than ever to ensure that your website is impeccable on mobile, and on a variety of browsers.
Device size reference
Data shows 75% of consumers admit to making judgements on a company’s credibility based on the company’s website design. Plain and simple: mobile matters.
Our prices guarantee compatibility on over 90% of all devices at 100% of applicable screen sizes.* What does that mean for you? It means that the 85% of people that believe the mobile version of your website should be better than your desktop will be S A T I S F I E D.
*Only certain screen sizes apply for certain mobile, proprietary, or industrial screen sizes.
**All clients are issued a contract at the time of service that outlines exact testing that will be done on their respective sites.

How it works, why it matters, and why the heck we can’t stop talking about it.
