Browser Shots

Posted by on Oct 5, 2008

A very short post. I came across this on the Dollar Shower blog. He was talking about a website called Browser Shots where you can go in, put a link to your website or blog, and it’ll show you what your site looks like on up to 54 different browsers; I didn’t even know there were that many.

I did a test with it by putting in my business blog, since I just changed over to that template. It came up with 37 different views for me, and you can hover over it and it’ll enlarge just a little bit so you can see if things are where you’re hoping they’ll be. Turns out my new site works on a bunch of them, but on one, Firefox 2.0.0.16 that can be used with a Mac, my Adsense that’s presently on the left bleeds into my content, and that’s a bad thing, and explains a comment I got from someone this week who said my Adsense was blocking 1/3rd of my content; heck. Unfortunately, nothing I can do about that, since I don’t know how to get into PHP just yet (but I did get a lesson, so I’ll be looking into something when I have time). Otherwise, it works great in Firefox 2.0.0.16 in Windows.

Overall, in the major browsers, it looks right except for Opera, and I guess I’ll just deal with that for the time being. Anyway, if you’re creating websites, give it a shot.

I will have a gander at that but I ain’t going to worry if it doesn’t work on some of them. It’s hard enough to make sure it works on the main browsers let alone 54 of them.

Hi Mitch,
Thanks for the link and mention… In fact Kim Woodbridge was the one who introduced me to Browsershots which is very good utility site for web developers.

Cheers,
Ajith

Mitch:

Sire, no problem. It’s just interesting to see, and I was stunned to see how badly my new theme showed up on some browsers.

Ajith, I subscribed to your site after reading some of your articles; good stuff. And you’ll have to thank Kim for bringing this site to our attention.

My blog theme didn’t perform all that badly, but luckily it performed well in those that mattered.
