The Web is a shared environment, where each individual exercises their right to choose which device, which browser and which
version of the browser they wish to use to view your website. Though browsers are slowly aligning to a set of
standards, browsers, particularly older versions, operate slightly differently.

structure will fail for the majority of users.
HawkOwl websites detect the browser window size and adjust the page layout and text size to
provide a balance between the users choice of window size and the information to be displayed.

By default HawkOwl websites are developed and tested using the Chrome and Firefox browsers,

- Edge / Internet Explorer
Tests will include viewing the impact of different browser window sizes, and browser text size and different devices.
