Hello WW. I have a js form that works fine on my browser, but checked it at a friends house and got errors. Is there a way I can test it on browsers other than my own so I can fix the problems? Thanx!

Birdman, you need to install additional browsers on your PC not only to solve this problem but for routine cross browser validation.
If you want to install a Netscape browser, I sugest you download from NS site to ensure at least it is as good as they managed to get it.

Opera is also a very good testing browser. I recommend you download the free version as well.

Opera is probably one of the best for testing JavaScript. It is the most picky of the main three browsers and also runs JS the slowest.

Once you get it working in Opera, a quick test in IE and Netscape is all that is usually needed.

And while you are at it, get a cheap iMac from eBay and test your sites in Netscape and IE on the Mac - very eye opening.
