When you’re making your Web pages in QuarkXPress, it’s helpful to test them in various Web browsers. But since it’s difficult, tedious, or impossible to keep multiple versions of multiple browsers on multiple operating systems, you can use BrowserShots to test your pages for you.
BrowserShots lets you preview website designs as they will appear in up to 85 different Web browser versions. It can show site previews with and without Flash, at multiple display color depths, and on different operating systems such as Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
This is a great utility for checking browser compatibility and for making sure your designs look the way you expect, even in obscure browser applications.
