You may receive a feedback saying “your web application looks wonderful, nice UI with color combination, templates, etc., very user friendly, and so on. So it seems ready to be used by the end user, but is it really complete in all aspects including testing? Probably not yet!

You should certainly go for Web Testing which is highly recommended to have a bug free website or a web application. Web testing services include carrying out testing of web applications to ensure that it is functionally and technically accurate, reliable, scalability and perform well with the required user load. Web application testing involves testing both the client and server side components.

There are some essential criteria for web application testing that includes Validation (HTML, CSS, broken links), Flexibility (Window sizes, font sizes), Speed (Access the app/site via a modem, image size specifications), Accessibility (Test accessibility, text browser), Browser independence (Different browsers, Switch JavaScript, plug-ins and images off), and few other checks (Non-reliance on mailto, no orphan pages, sensible page titles, etc.).

Here is a checklist for web application testing which are necessary to be verified, most of them are generally overlooked by large numbers of organizations:
