apart from functional, security, performance testing

you can also test your web applications on various browsers and on various resolution( like 800X600 etc...in my case we omit this part )
More over its not necessary to execute all test cases separately on all web browsers , you can simply plan to execute diff scenarios on diff browsers so that all the screens(webpages) of your applications are covered on all the browsers

If you mean the different areas of testing (as assumed by Keshava) you can find a quick overview of functional tests, performance tests, compatibility tests, security tests and usability tests under http://en.web2test.de/web-testing-knowledgebase/web-testing/.
Or are you talking about the different techniques (of whitebox/blackbox testing ...) like boundary value analysis/equivalence partitioning, fuzz testing, loop testing?

First of all you must be able to differentiate between testing types and testing techniques.

Hi Karuna,

Have you prepared the test cases as per the SRS?
The test cases should cover...
1. Functional requirement
2. Browser compatibility
3. Negative test cases
4. UI

1.Cookie testing
2.URL validation (like the application pass a activate URL thru email, you need to check that validation)
3.Session Handling
4.authorization / authentication

First you should take some time to explore the application before starting testing.

1) Then do Firstly adhoc testing.

2) Then go towards specific fucntional testing.

3) Gui Testing

4) Cross browser.

5) If required then do security and performance testing.
