In order to ensure the displaying effect of Web applications, it is important to perform compatibility testing for browsers under the different user-side configurations. Since the user-side configurations have many combinations, it is a hard task to test the vast combinations efficiently. We focus on the improvements for browser compatibility testing. Firstly, we built a model for browser compatibility testing based on the characters of Web applications. Then we analyzed the functional speciality of the current popular browsers, and provided the preconditions to simplify the researching problems. Next we gave an instance of browser compatibility testing and brought forward the single factor covering method and the pair-wise covering design to gain testing suits, comparing and analyzing each advantage and disadvantage. And finally, we introduced the assistant tools we have developed and gave how our tools perform compared with others.
