Is SuperPreview a Superstar? Browser Testing in Expression Web 4

Tweet

Today we conclude our Microsoft Expression Web series with, Cross-browser Development with SuperPreview, an article that focuses on SuperPreview, the browser-testing tool that has been integrated into the Expression Web package.

SitePoint’s very own front end development and design maven, Alex Walker, begins the tutorial by retelling the painful past of multiple browser testing. Using different computers, installing virtual machines, or subscribing to online browser shot tools were as good as it got, with each option having it’s own limitations. By taking SuperPreview for a spin, Alex shows us how easy it is to conduct testing in Expression Web across a myriad of browsers – even Safari 4.0.4 on OSX!

You’ll learn how to conduct a basic side-by-side browser comparison, and how to add more browser versions to your test. Alex will also introduce you to the SuperPreview toolbar, which has all sorts of cool buttons to make your life easier.

As you work your way through the article you’ll get a feel for SuperPreview’s local and cloud-based capabilities, and it’s unique capacity to compare and inspect DOM elements.

There is a short quiz, sponsored by Microsoft, for you to complete once you’ve read the tutorial, so make sure you jog your memory and take a stab at it.

    This SuperPreview is a Super Duper Star for me. It really helps so much. I used to use IETester for this purpose, but now my real superstar arrives in the world! :) Very easy tool, and lovely stuff is remote web browser ( Safari ) … but waiting for more remote web browers ( if there is any ).
    Thank you so much sitepoint for a lovely topic and thanks to Microsoft for a superstar :)
