Browser test

Hello,

Does someone knows a web tool that tests a web site in various browsers
and OS?
I would like to get the screen shots as a result.

And in which browsers should I test my web site?

Is it possible to test a web site in a MAC browser when I am running
windows?

Thanks,
Miguel

No.

Write good html and css, validate it and if it works in FF, it
will likely work in Safari etc

Hi Harlan, I left out FF because it does not, as far as I know,
differ as between Mac and IE (unlike Mac IE 5 and Win IE
anyNumber).

Well, I know, but up to that point Firefox hadn't been mentioned in
either context, Windows or Mac, as a browser that the OP should test on.
(Is Opera on Windows different from Opera on Mac? I knew about
IE--they're completely different applications.)

There was another reason i left out mentioning FF specifically in
the context in which I did not mention it. Perhaps you missed
reading all the details of my early reply where I did mention it:

"Write good html and css, validate it and if it works in FF, it
will likely work in Safari etc"

?

As to Opera, I honestly do not know, I suspect very much that
modern Opera is like FF, pretty trans platform.

How do people have time to get to know browsers! I use the
excellent Safari for actual (non web developing) browsing and
iCab and FF for website making and analysing stuff. Opera I fire
up and look admiringly at without ever really getting the time to
study.
