3 free tools to quickly test the crossbrowser compatibility
When you develop a new website or apply design changes on an existing one, it is essential to test the crossbrowser compatibility of your design in more than one browsers. This process is called crossbrowser compatibility testing. In order to do all the necessary checks you either have to install all the browsers you wish to test on your own pc or use a 3rd party service that displays you website exactly like it would appear in each browser.
There is a wide range of services for this purspose, the following 3 are the ones that from my point of view offer satisfaying results at no cost!
This is a web service that is part of the Adobe CS Live services and it is free of cost (at least for now). You are only required to register on your first use. The application is very simple to use with a very charming interface. You can test your site on the latest versions and still usable versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari. You will also notice that the results appear very fast in comparison to other services. In the results screen the well-designed interface lets you easily compare the results, by using various different views.
NetRenderer is a more humble solution that only lets you test your site on the different Internet Explorer versions. It currently supports all the IE versions from IE5.5 to the new IE9. There is also a browser toolbar available that allows you to quickly test any of the pages you are visiting.
