Every good webmaster should check the compatibility of their site with browsers. But it is possible, depending on your operating system, you're having trouble try one or the other browsers. Here are some solutions.
Some websites offer for you to make screenshots of your site in different browsers. This allows not to install multiple browsers on your machine. However, a disadvantage is that you can not test your changes in real time. Indeed, it takes some time before your application is accepted, depending on the number of users of the service.
The most common browsers can be installed without difficulty on Windows:
But other problems arise. There are different versions of Internet Explorer. And although these browsers are all made-by Microsoft, there are major problems of compatibility with different versions and operating systems.
If you're running GNU/Linux, browsers such as Firefox or Konqueror are not a problem. You can also use Google Chrome and Opera under most distributions.
For Safari, there are no solution, but in general what works under Chrome also works in Safari because they both use the same WebKit core to render pages.
The problem is Internet Explorer. It can not be installed (easy) for Linux and the solution is obviously a virtual machine of Windows (which has IE), see below ..
Windows XP users
If you are using IE6:
I urge you to upgrade to IE7, especially for security reasons. Anyway, you can use a standalone IE7.
Note: this method is not supported by microsoft. To perform at your own risk.
