How can I emulate mobile browsers to test my websites?

There are various methods for emulating mobile browsers for website testing.

  • Use mobile browser emulators to test your code.
  • Test on device Emulators and Simulators.
  • Test using cloud-based emulators and simulators.

1. Testing using a mobile browser emulator

You can test the mobile view of websites using an online mobile browser emulator or the in-built developer tools available for common desktop browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, and others.

2. Test on device Emulators and Simulators

The next method to emulate mobile browsers is using device emulators and simulators for UI testing purposes. You can test mobile browsers on your desktop with Android Emulators and iOS Simulators. It gives you the same experience as working on your handheld device.

3. Using Cloud-based Emulators and Simulators

Keeping in-house Android emulators and iOS simulators can be time-consuming. Cloud-based emulators and simulators are a potential choice for emulating mobile browsers to facilitate your mobile web browser testing. Cloud-based testing platforms, such as LambdaTest, provide testing emulators and simulators on an online browser farm of 3000+ browsers and operating systems, removing the pain of setting up local emulators and simulators.
