The easiest way to see your site in IE7 and Safari
Like many web developers before me, I've become a conscripted webservant in
my wife's quest to launch a website - Rachel's setting up a store for high end
children's clothing. She's got an incredible eye for design, which makes her one
of the toughest clients I've had.
When her sister viewed the site in Safari the links all appeared
red. Strange, as the CSS bade it otherwise (hello, LoVe
/ HAte rule). Well, iCapture
came to the rescue. I didn't have to sidle up to the genius bar with a wad of
cash; I just entered the URL and saw a screenshot. Be sure to chop the
http:// off your URL - the site chokes on that, and it's also
got an address length limit that caused problems deep into my DotNetNuke site.
Still, a nice way to spot check Safari rendering on the cheap.
And while you're at it, check out ieCapture - the easiest way to see
how your site will render in IE7. I suggested this kind of thing to the IE team
at Mix06 and haven't heard anything since, but Dan
Vine's got us covered.
