Definition: cross-browser


Web pages and Web-based applications that render properly in all Web browsers. Cross-browser functionality is the goal of website and browser developers. Although standards from the W3C have helped programmers create cross-browser software, every browser on the market does not render every Web page identically. For developers, a cross-browser utility can render a page in multiple layout engines all at once rather than manually having to load the page into separate browsers. See HTML5 and browser rendering engine.
