    Question Browser compatability

    Ok...there has to be an easier way to check my pages' compatability within browsers than installing each one and visiting my page...right??? Any links to free software will be greatly appreciated. Cheers!

    I think installing every browser on your machine is the best thing to do. If you're serious about developping solutions that work for all of them, you're better off installing them. You should have :

    MSIE 5+
    NS4
    NS6.2
    Opera 5+

    I'm sure you have the room on your hard drive for all of them.

    In addition

    It might also be worth checking your site on Lynx - this is a VERY basic text browser, looks a lot like a DOS prompt. What it does, though, is ignore all images and scripts, totally ignores table layouts and therefore gives you an indication of what the site will be like for blind people.

    Alternatively, try installing a text reader like Connect Outloud (which is available as a trial download) and it will read your page out for you.

    This may not be at the top of your list of things to do, but it's good to have an understanding of the accessibility issues.
