  • 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.

                  I often do much the same thing. I'll even do it that way when sending files to printers -- just so that at a glance the printer can tell what colors are involved. The only problem I've found has nothing...

                  Thanks for the feedback Buda; I'm using wordpress and I have a very fast connection at home. I stupidly thought wordpress was automatically compressing the images when uploaded. For the moment it is mostly...

                  If you followed the other suggestion to look for banding and get a proof, then yes it is fine if you have also fixed the knob.

                  No display is fine. The shot is too close to the background without any additional outlining back lighting.

                  Front cover, I am going to say that the model choice is all wrong. Was that your doing? If it was reconsider using a more attractive guy even if you want rugged. Men are the same as women and want to...
