Federal government websites often end in .gov or .mil. Before sharing sensitive information, make sure you’re on a federal government site.

Https

The site is secure.
The https:// ensures that you are connecting to the official website and that any information you provide is encrypted and transmitted securely.

Browser Testing

Regular cross-browser testing helps ensures your web site or application is accessible and functional to a broad audience, especially as Internet Explorer 11 is pervasive in federal government but TTS developers use Chrome on macOS almost exclusively.

Using a responsive web design and a standards-based approach will result in wide compatibility across modern browsers, but at the edges your product can still trip up on browser-specific quirks. For example, compare the list of web technologies supported in Internet Explorer 11 versus Chrome. Progressive Web Application-related features and behaviors also vary widely across devices and browsers.

A few options are available at TTS that allow testing on multiple browser platforms. An automated testing solution is ideal, but even manual cross-browser testing remains valuable.
