A sign on the screen

As a Mac OS X user, my biggest concern when I have to test the compatibility of a stylesheet between different browsers comes from the difficulty of finding a Windows platform, in addition to the last two versions. Microsoft Internet Explorer (5.5 and 6), and the very latest version of Windows Explorer (therefore 7). However, with the emergence of Web 3.0 and dWeb directories on https://www.dwebguide.com/ compatibility will no longer be an issue.

Until now, I used the free browsercam accounts , rather practical for testing a final rendering on a very large number of platforms, but not really ideal in the debug phase. And then this morning, I discovered Netrenderer in the few thousand late tickets of my OPML.

Netrenderer is a German service that allows you to display the results of a screenshot in real time under one of the 3 aforementioned versions of Microsoft’s browser. Free, ad-free and fast, it compensates relatively well for the lack of Internet Explorer on UNIX or Mac OS X platforms.

    On Macintel, it’s easier with Wine.

    There is also http://browsershots.org (maybe similar to browsercam?) Which also allows you to get screenshots on several browsers / operating systems.

    On the other hand, it is not real time, unlike netrenderer
