Does Your Web Site Look Good?

By on Feb 18, 2010

Traditionally, Web developers only needed to worry about how your Web site displayed in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE). No longer. Multiple Web browsers are commonly used by your prospects and clients. A bad looking page on a non-IE browser (e.g. Firefox, Safari, Opera) could make a prospect abandon your site.

Browsershots.org is a complimentary service that lets you test your Web design in several different combinations of Web browsers and operating systems. It’s a handy tool to make sure you know how your Web site will look on different systems, which sometimes mangle sites using nonstandard code.

It’s simple to use. Put your Web site address into the input bar, select the different browers and operation systems you want to test, and click submit. Browsershots proceeds to make screenshots of your Web design in different browsers.

When you submit your Web address, it is added to the job queue. A number of distributed computers open your Web site in their browser. Then, they make screenshots and upload them to a central server. This process can take a while, depending on how many combinations you selected. The screenshots are then displayed on the site and you can download them to view in more detail.
