There are some online tools that throw up screen shots of a wide range of browsers, but nothing beats testing in the real thing. You can have many browsers open at once, and it's as simple as a page refresh. Can't get much easier than that IMHO.
Also I have heard a lot of people disregard Microsoft on here, especially Internet Explorer.... What is the big problem with Internet Explorer, and why don't they make the fixes, or are they just too stubborn?
Past versions have tended to be very buggy, which has led IE to being the whipping boy of web designers. It's been a big problem that MS has, in the past, just put these dudd browsers out there and not updated them, which has left us with a pile of turds in the bowl that won't flush. Thankfully, the latest versions of IE will auto update, which pretty much means the woeful age of IE bugs will fade away in the near future, once the older browsers have fallen out of use. (That is being held up by other MS problems, such as their crappy operating systems like XP that people won't upgrade and that don't run the newest IE browser versions. :rolleyes: )
you can't really add any extra memory etc to Apple's
You certainly can add extra memory to Macs. (They never sell with their memory capacity maxed out, just to keep the price down, I guess.)
HTML is the basis of web design, so no one is suggesting not using it.
