How to Test on Older Browsers?

 4:12 am on Aug 10, 2008 (gmt 0)

Hi there!

I'm testing out some CSS code and I would like to test whether or not it works on older browsers. I can look up whether they are supported by older browsers - of course - but I prefer to see the results for myself.

I have 2 comps - a laptop running Vista. I have IE7, FireFox, Opera 9, and Safari 3 on this computer. I have a slightly older computer running Windows XP that just has IE6.

I would like to download some older browser versions (like IE5) for testing purposes, but I can't seem to find links which are still working to these downloads. If anyone knows a spot to download these at I would very much appreciate it!

To see 'screendumps' of how a specific (online) page looks in around 56 different browsers running on Linux, Windows and Mac, try [browsershots.org...]

What is Browsershots?

Browsershots makes screenshots of your Web design in different browsers. It is a free open-source online service created by Johann C. Rocholl. When you submit your Web address, it will be added to the job queue. A number of distributed computers will open your Web site in their browser. Then they will make screenshots and upload them to the central server here.
