Web Application Testing?
A web application (app) is a program delivered through the internet in the form of a browser interface. The purpose of a web app is efficiently communicating and exchanging information with its users while being compliant with a variety of browsers and operating systems (OSs).
Web app testing, or web testing, is a software testing practice that helps ensure the quality and functionalities of the app according to the requirements. Web testing must detect all underlying issues, such as functional discrepancies, security breaches, integration problems, environmental issues, or traffic stress before it is delivered.
