Windows Browser Testing

Browserling offers free online cross-browser testing in various Microsoft Windows versions. We have installed Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows XP on real computers and you can get quick remote access to various browsers running on these Windows versions. On each Windows computer, we have installed Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari, Internet Explorer, and Edge. Each browser also has multiple versions installed. For example, Chrome has versions 1 to 90, Firefox has versions 3 to 88, Opera has versions 10 to 75, Internet Explorer has versions 6 to 11, and Edge has the latest version.

Windows Testing FAQ

Which Windows systems do you have available?

We have installed all the most popular Windows systems – Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, and XP.

Why is cross-browser testing on Windows important?

Cross-browser testing on Windows is very important because it's the most popular operating system. It's used by 75% of all users (followed by macOS at 16%). Each Windows version is slightly different and has different graphics and font rendering, window decorations, and keyboard shortcuts. To make really great websites and web applications, you need to make sure your design and code looks and functions exactly the same on all Windows versions.

When did Microsoft switch to Edge as the default browser?

Microsoft Edge is a relatively new browser that first appeared in Windows 10. The initial release of the Edge browser was in July 2015. Windows 10 also includes Internet Explorer 11 for compatibility purposes but it's not the default browser.

How was the original Edge browser engine called?

Until 2019, Edge was built using Microsoft's proprietary browser engine called EdgeHTML and a proprietary JavaScript engine called Chakra. In 2019, Microsoft rebuilt Edge on open-source Chromium that uses the Blink rendering engine and the V8 JavaScript engine. EdgeHTML and Chakra are now called Microsoft Edge Legacy.

Do you run Windows emulators?

No, we don't run Windows emulators or simulators. We use Windows cloud servers that run native Windows installations.

No, at Browserling, we focus only on browser testing and don't offer Windows application testing.
