SiteVista, an alternative service to BrowserCam, has just released CSSVista. CSSVista enables you to edit and test your CSS simultaneously in Firefox and Internet Explorer via a split-screen layout. It’s free… unfortunately it’s only available for WinXP. With FF and IE, SiteVista covers a large majority of the browsers relevant for testing. Still, I find it’s best to cover a few more browsers. I test in the following browsers, though I don’t give too much attention to those that are redundant or outdated in the meantime. I’ve bolded the ones I try to get pixel perfect results in (except for Lynx, of course, which I use to test how the site works semantically).

  • IE 4.01, 5.01, 5.5, 6.0
  • Lynx
  • Mozilla Firefox 1.0.7
  • Mozilla Suite 1.3, 1.5, 1.6
  • Netscape 4.74, 6.2, 7.2, 8.0
  • Opera 7.11, 7.54, 8.0, 8.5
  • SeaMonkey 1.0α
  • WebTV Viewer

Just wish I had a Mac to test in IE5.2, Safari and Omniweb!

You can find a very comprehensive archive of older browsers for your downloading and testing pleasure at browsers.evolt.org.
