I suggest you improve Rigor by...

Support Additional "Real" browsers, not FF with a different UA String

Use real rendering engines from the different browsers. We all know IE behaves differently than other browsers, and loads DOM objects/executes JS/socket connects differently.

To be clear, right now all of Rigor’s Real Browser Checks run under a real browser, not an emulated one. We are using FireFox 45 ESR. When you select a different User-Agent, we change that UA string or view port, but its always a real browser.

Upgrading to this new version of FF meant we had to completely rewrite all our plugins that take measurements. Luckily these new plugins are more universal, so adding additional real browsers like Chrome is easier.

We are now looking at how to add additional browsers
