  • Testing in multiple browsers on Vista?

    On my old laptop (running XP) I had TredoSoft's "Multiple IE" hack that let me run multiple versions of IE to test in. I also had a couple other browsers so really covered most of the bases as far as browsers went. Now my new laptop is running Vista, and the previous software doesn't work. Any suggestions on how to test in multiple browsers (more specifically multiple versions of IE)...? I've seen some sites that will render your page in different versions but you'd have to run a new render each time you tweaked the CSS if there was an issue or something. Grr I hate IE.

    See if IETester will work.

    Alternately Microsoft has a (massive) program called SuperPreview intended for this.

      Thanks Vanish, I just downloaded that SuperPreview but as I was waiting for that to come down I found something else -- http://www.xenocode.com/browsers/ -- which seems to possibly be the most amazing thing so far! I don't have to install an overly bloated software program to accomplish some basic testing!

        I use browser cross check for my web designs. You can goto the site and it has over 20 OS's and browsers that will crawl your site and take a snapshot of the page you want tested...goto google and type in browser shots.

        Good luck.

            Adobe just launched a pretty (if limited in scope) cross-browser/platform tester:

                Yes, yes it does. I've been running it in vista for almost a year now.

                  It is not perfect in any way. It did grab my attention though and got the message across (the importance of having all the medical information in a hospital in one place (database). The design concept...

                  As a psychotherapist, do you think the rather cold, medical look of the ads you liked, would resonate with your prospective clients? Or would a softer approach that stressed competency, understanding...

                  You're right. I liked the design concept itself (how it grabbed my attention). I know getting attention is just a start but that much it did.

                  Awesome is whether or not the ads get the result the ads are intended to achieve. What might be awesome for one purpose could easily miss the mark for the next. The aesthetic part of the design, which...
