    wouldn't it be nice...

    wouldn't it be nice if someone invinted a web testing environment where you could have 2 monitors up with a browser in each monitor. and as you browse a web page each monitor shows you how it looks vs the other one. Like you could see JS vs NO JS or IE vs FF. and visually see the difference at the same time like you are navigating one and the other monitor automatically does the same thing in the other browser so you could compare.

    I think that would be great.

    so what's the problem ... just get two monitors. I've been using two for years (and thinking about a third right now)

    And isn't there a service out there that you can use to see how your site will look in all the different browsers.

    I've seen it discussed time and time again here, but I'm not a webdeveloper so I never bothered to make note of it.

    so when I hook up 2 monitors... please tell me how to set it so my mouse will display on both at the same time and when I click a button on one side it clicks the same button on the other side?

    so with ff devtoolbar you can actually simultaneuosly see how your page will look in IE and FF at the same time as you navigate it? can you pick what else you want to see simultaneously? like having JS enabeled or not?

    Yes I guess but still I would have to do something on onse side then do it again on the other side....I was talking about something that auto does it on the other side at the same time so I can compare simultanously.

    So what's wrong with just alt-ing and tab-ing between the two browsers??...

    You can still have them over two monitors if you want.

    Not simultaneously. With the click of a tab or button. Displays IE in one window and FF in the other. Turn js off with a drop down menu or, I think, Alt-something.

    It's pretty damn good feature set they offer and it's very fast, couldn't ask for much more really.
