Testing a website in various browsersMarch 19, 2010
There are several online free and paid tools around that allow you to see how a website you’ve designed displays in the various browsers.
A new kid on the block is the free BrowserLab online tool available from Adobe: http://browserlab.adobe.com
You need to sign in with your Adobe ID, or sign up to get an ID. Once you’re in, you enter the URL of the site you want to check, then choose the browser you want to see your website displayed in. You can also choose a view to view the website in two different browsers side-by-side or overlaid.
Adobe’s BrowserLab is very simple to use, and it means you don’t have to download and install multiple browsers or have machine with different operating systems. Nice one, Adobe!
