What is Web Application Testing?

The web application runs within a browser.

This is the application that entirely resides on the server and to access the application, we need a platform i.e. browser.

So if any application runs on the browser can say it’s a web application.  

Taking an example of one of the applications is Facebook which is having pages or modules which run on a browser.

A web application is being used on various devices i.e. mobile, tablet, and desktop with a web browser and internet connectivity.

These applications are developed using popular technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and are utilized through multiple browsers like Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.

Web applications can also be viewed across multiple devices like mobiles, tablets, and desktops that provide active internet connections.
