As a website developer, you always want to make sure your website appears correctly on various browsers. Because of the compatibility issues across browsers and versions of browsers, your websites may display properly in firefox, however it will not open properly in IE. Last time i wrote about “Browsershots” which allows you to test your websites on multiple browsers as well as OSes. Here is a service by Adobe called “BrowserLab” which provides an easier, faster solution for cross-browser testing.
BrowserLab provides web designers exact renderings of their web pages in multiple browsers and operating systems, on demand. BrowserLab is a powerful solution for cross-browser compatibility testing, featuring multiple viewing and comparison tools, as well as customizable preferences. Since BrowserLab is an online service, it can be accessed from virtually any computer connected to the web.
