    Checking Display/Usability in other browsers

    Hello-
    I'm new to the forum so apologies if this question is too simplistic, ...

    Other than Dreamweaver, what tools are there to quickly check how a web page displays in different browsers? Is there a Firefox extension?

    For example: I want to see how a page displays in Safari, IE, Firefox, Opera, Camino, and perhaps even Chrome?

    Thanks very much.

    You can try browsershots.org, that is my favourite. Sitepoint did actually do an article on this recently, but I can't find it now.

    Why not just install the different browsers on your computer so you can open the page in them when you need to. I think I have close to 20 different browser versions installed on my computer.

    <p>You're right. I guess I was just thinking or hoping for a tool that would allow me to just paste the URL in once. I guess I'm kind of lazy Thanks for your feedback.

    20 browsers is overkill. All you need is IE 6, IE 7, IE 8 Beta 2, Firefox 3, K-Meleon 1.0 (for legacy testing - especially when testing how things "may" work on Linux), Opera 9, and Safari 3. Fortunately IETester takes care of IE which leaves four other browsers. Three if you don't care about Gecko on Linux.
