How Does Your Website Look On Different Platforms

If you design website templates, do front end coding, deal with CSS, or own/manage a website, wouldn’t it be great if you could see how your website looked like in as many different browsers and Operating Systems?

Since at present there is no uniformity in browser or front end scripting standards, it makes sense to ensure that pages don’t get messed up across multiple browsers.

Browsershots is a free open source tool available on line which allows you to view screen shots of how your website page looks like in multiple environments. All you have to do is submit your address to the website where it gets added to a job queue. A number of distributed computers then execute the job by opening the submitted page in their browser. They take the screenshots and upload them to the main server which can then be viewed by you.

The results can help you to decide whether any further fine tuning is required to improve the site.

The service is quite useful and heavily recommended. Best of all its pretty fast too, didn’t take me more than a couple of minutes to view screen shots of TechBanyan.

Another interesting thing I found in the results was the kind of ads which got displayed. The top banner ad widget always shows one kind of ad to me but apparently shows a whole variety of ads to different users as seen in those screen shots.
