I want to set up a work station at home - I have a new laptop, an old broken laptop, and an old (working) desktop PC.
I'd like to put all the browsers on the desktop PC, and use the broken laptop - if possible - as an external display for it. But my real question is - how do I install multiple versions of one browser on a single computer (IE 4.0, 5.0, 6.0) and is it possible to see how it would run on MAC while using a PC? Is that a dumb question?
I thought I heard something about Linux having a program that can check different browsers - anyone know anything about this? Anyone suggest replacing XP on the desktop with linux?
CROSS BROWSER TESTING
It's a good idea to install 4 major browsers on your good working PC;
Firefox, IE7 or 8, Opera, Safari for Win or Google Chrome.
For all the rest, you can use these resources:
Browser & Platform compatibility checker (screenshots)-
DebugBar Multiple IE checker - (download)
Adobe Browser Lab - (on-line)
iPhone simulator - (on-line)
Opera Mini Mobile Simulator (on-line)
SEO Browser (on-line)
Cross Browser Testing (on-line)
I already have the major modern browsers on my good PC, and have tried Adobe's browser lab - but the browser lab only produces a screen shot, and I'd like to test the spry menus and the browsing "experience" without having to reload page after page on browser after browser.
I'll check out the links you listed, you always seem to point me in the right direction.
