Testing the responsive site for BBC News

The BBC's internet blog recently revealed that the BBC News website is moving to a responsive design. The update reacts to changes in browsing habits, with more people using mobile devices but also wanting the 'full fat' version of the BBC's site rather than a cut-down equivalent. The corporation therefore plans to gradually optimise and deliver essential features, then improve things over time.

With the BBC being visited by so many people, it has to work with a huge range of devices, platforms and browsers; ensuring the new site works well with them is therefore a mammoth undertaking. David Blooman, test engineer at BBC Future Media, reveals to .net how he went about doing so.
