Mobile web browser testing is a process through which we can test the functionality of a mobile web application on different mobiles across different devices.

Mobile web apps are accessed by users in the same way as traditional desktop or laptop web applications—via a URL or link. Mobile web apps are built using standard web technologies (HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript) and can leverage the user’s device capabilities (GPS location, camera, microphone, etc.).

Here are some of the approaches to mobile web browser testing:

  • Using Desktop browsers

  • Testing on emulators and simulators

  • Testing on Real devices

  • Cloud-based testing

  • Mobile friendly testing

You can go through the following article to deep dive into each of the approaches:
