Browsershots. What is Browsershots? Browsershots is a web design tool that Webmasters use to make over 200 screen shots in different web browsers of one of their web pages. Why would you want to do this? Because your site looks fine with the browser you use does not mean that its going to look the same on all browsers, so if a visitor uses a different browser than the browser that you use your site design could be all over the place, with text overlapping on images, or your sites to wide and lots more. With Browsershots you get a image of the web page you are testing but its a image with how your site looks like on that browser with the name of the browser, see below of our site.
Check Browser Compatibility
If you are going to create a website then part of the process is to have a great design but how do you know what your design will look like on other computers that use different web browsers? One of the best ways that is fast, free and easy to use is to visit Browsershots they have software on their site that will check browser compatibility on hundreds of different web browsers with a click of a button. All you have to do is sit back and when Browsershots has finished loading have a look at the images of your site in different browsers.
If you find that your design has a problem in one of the browsers you will know that you have a problem with your coding and you will have to fix it, once fixed use Browsershots again and see if its fixed correctly. This Webmaster tool is a great help to Webmasters. Once you decide on your site design and create the first page then use Browsershots before creating more pages as if you have a problem it will be on each page you build, causing more work fixing those pages.
Screenshots Of Your Website
Browsershots is a free open-source online web application providing developers a convenient way to check browser compatibility in one place. When you submit your web address, it will be added to the job queue. A number of distributed computers will open your web page in their browser. They then will make screenshots of the page and upload them to Browsershots dedicated servers for your review if your site has a problem you will see it in the screenshot. If you have a problem on any of the screenshots you will have to do a redesign. Once you have fixed the problem do another test with Browsershots.
If you use a site builder or WordPress then your site web design configuration should be fine and you won't have to check browser compatibility on Browsershots. If you can edit codes like in WordPress and you do add extra custom CSS and HTML coding for a extra feature on your site that is not included in the theme then its a good idea to check your site to make sure you have no errors in the design.
