Navigating browser compatibility is like mastering a gnarly wave. When I first started freelancing, I landed a big client still riding Internet Explorer’s swell.
I dove into the project, mapping requirements and carving out user stories. I was certain I had it covered.
Then I wiped out.
I slipped up by a poor understanding of their legacy tech. More than half the company used IE and I built for modern browsers.
To avoid the riptide, I swam back to my requirements with a focus on IE. The funny thing? Just as I recovered, another large swell hit. The client announced a major Microsoft upgrade across the enterprise.
The lessons were hard-won. Do a thorough job understanding your client's needs, including past, present, and future considerations.
You'll save time, gain trust, and keep clients stoked.
