Website testing - a check its pages a lot of different ways: checking the display of pages in different browsers, check the quality of pages, detect code errors validator, testing speed downloads pages, etc.
The purpose of testing
The main purpose of such a thorough check of the site is the competent adjustment of all indicators, one or all pages of the site, the rapid detection and elimination of all defective places on the site, as well as adapting it to different devices. What will be useful and convenient for both the site owner and for its visitors.
Testing is also necessary when adding new functionality to the site. Even if you plan to make minor changes like adding icons or changing fonts, they should be tested first. It's important to make sure all the new features work properly in all browsers and are always available to users.
Features of the test
 For the checking to be effective it is necessary to take into account all the nuances in the work of the site and check all of its functionality, starting from the simplest settings, and ending with the analysis of the correctness of its individual programs.
After careful analysis and collection of all necessary data, the following types of tests are carried out:
Block tests, which are compiled by developers for individual parts of the functionality to test them in isolation;
integration tests for checking several interacting functionalities; they simulate the actions of real users and send a report on the work done;
functional tests to verify the entire system, the test checks the entire page and confirms the work of all systems in accordance with the prescribed TOR;
smoke-tests for express-checking of the system, they are used for the simplest and surface checks.
 Implementation of such tests provides detection of errors both during and after testing.
Testing methods
 You can test the site both manually and automatically. Each of these methods has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Automatic testing
 The tester uses special programs to perform automatic testing. Such programs can be used several times, which saves time. The algorithm of such programs determines the compliance of certain parameters of the site to users' expectations. This type of testing is most suitable for large projects loaded with complex functionality.
Manual testing
 With such testing, the tester performs all the steps manually, without the use of special programs. Such testing is most useful because it eliminates flaws in the test. Automatic testing only shows whether the system is working or not, while manual testing allows you to evaluate the effectiveness of various systems from the user's point of view. Therefore, manual testing should not be abandoned.
 Testing results
 As a result of testing you'll find out not only what functionality is working properly on the site, and which has some problems, but also get the following benefits:
saving resources to maintain the site,
code safety and the ability to make changes to it even after several years,
improving architecture and code security.
 Testing is carried out not only during use, but also during the development of sites. After all, even at the stage of creating a web resource it is important to properly assess the effectiveness of all its systems.
