Website Quality measures the rate of design and usability.
Quality can be implemented to maximum for those websites which deals with arts, fashions, Designs, creativity and etc. Visitors can allow theses kind of websites to take sometime till it gets loaded completely.
Let us assume a website which is about Interior Designing Company. In this situation, a visitor will see the website for the company’s previous works. These sample works will be given with high quality images with large memory size. It might take long time to load. Webpage visitor will know these things and wait till it gets loaded. This is too predictable for a visitor.
Software Testers are here to test highly on the webpage design and not on the webpage performance. A software tester will be working in this website with a normal end-user mindset.
There might also be a case, where the website owner asks for both website Quality as well as website performance to be relatively higher.
But in practical, it is very tough for building a website with high website quality and website performance. We should compromise on any of one thing. The motive of the website should decide the scenario for which should we able to concentrate.
Website performance measures the rate of request and response time between visitor and server..
Performance can be implemented to maximum for those websites which deals with content-based, Education, Dictionary, Online tutorials, e-Magazines and etc. Visitors cannot wait a long time till the webpage gets loaded completely. If a webpage takes much time to load, the visitor will skip this and go to some other websites. This increases the bounce rate of our website gradually.
Let us assume a website which is about today’s Hot News (e-Newspaper) In this situation, a visitor needs to read the hot news on current day. There will not be more number of images since the webpage is all about contents. If the design is too heavy, then the webpage will take much time to load. Website performance should be excellent for these type of websites. Response time should be too fast.
Software Testers will test highly on the webpage performance. A software tester will be working in this website with a normal end-user mindset and expect a quick response from the server.
To improve both website quality and website performance of a website, there are some easy and simple techniques. When there are lots of images and animations are to be used in a webpage, then the template should be designed accordingly. Frame concepts should be implemented and refreshing the frames instead of entire webpage for major conditions allows the website quality and website performance balance a little bit effective.
