Not to forget cross-browser compatible websites are the future. Enterprises are aiming to thoroughly perform cross browser testing on their respective website to soothe the UI and UX for their end users and to expand their customer reach as well. With the rapid speed at which technology and internet both are expanding. There are many free resources available on the internet for developing a cross browser compatible website or web app. Below mentioned are the ones I find the most valuable.

1. Node.js

Built around the latest v8 engine of Chrome, Node.js is an open source JavaScript-based framework that runs across multiple platforms. Initially released for Linux in 2009, Node JS is the perfect based framework for developing single page web applications. ** 2. Bootstrap**

This framework is based on HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Designed in 2011, it is the most used framework for developing responsive websites with accelerated page loading speed.

3. Bable.js

Babel is a transpiler and a brilliant one indeed. It converts incompatible source code or the library functionality into browser supported code which your browser may find compatible. Transpilers are often mistaken for compilers, but they are a bit different. They work on the source code and return a more sturdy compatible source code only. Developers can even customize Babel to suit them better.

4. Modernizr

Modernizr that can efficiently solve challenges faced in cross browser web development and based on test case scenarios, conditionally load JS or CSS files. Modernizr detects the CSS3 and HTML5 features supported by the browser of the end user. Modernizr introduces Feature Detection. That will check whether the browser supports the code and gives you a “false” or “true” result.
