Client Side

In web parlance a Client such as legacy browsers Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari exist on ones personal computing hardware as a means to access information on a remote server. The client technology is rapidly evolving as apps for hardware such as smart phones and wearable devices. Rapid evolution and competition has led to some variance in the way each browser interprets the code it receives in a web page. Features that work in one browser may not work at all in others, which has led to the need for cross-browser testing and the development of web testing tools.
