Rosemont Review Poll: Browser Preference and Compatibility

Metal, Human, Animal, Adventure, or Other?

How would you describe your web browser preferences? Shiny and smooth? Columbus on the Mayflower? Carnivorous, cunning, combustible? Lions, tigers, and bears? None of the above? Just sit and click away? Regardless of whether you advocate the use of one browser over another or use different browsers for different tasks, your choice can have a profound effect on website performance.

Why is Browser Compatibility Important?

Whether you’re a plastic surgeon or a cosmetic dentist, a bariatric surgeon or vision correction specialist, your website is not only a virtual representation of your practice, but it also represents you as an expert medical practitioner. While browser compatibility is mainly a concern during medical and dental website design and development, you should at least be aware of the key factors affecting the ability of your aesthetic practice’s website to interact with the most commonly used browsers because it can greatly affect search engine marketing.

Impact of Display Errors

Consider this: if a medical journal you turned to for current information regarding your field of expertise contained a number of spelling and grammatical errors, you would likely question the credibility of the publication. Display errors can have the same effect on a practice’s website potential. By proactively addressing common areas of concern that can affect  website visibility, you will preserve the quality and integrity of the online portrayal of your work while increasing overall usability.
