Hello everyone, I was recently given the job of creating a few small webpages, nothing complex, at work. These pages will be targeted for multiple browers so I need to test each page on the targeted browers. I was wondering if, by some chance, there was a decent IDE for web development that would show a rendered output from a specified browser or will I just have to result in downloading each browser? Thanks.

I just started using microsoft expressions and it is rather nice. It has a good css editor and split view for code/output. It can also preview in FF/IE6/IE7 at multiple resolutions.

Thanks a lot, I'll look into this tool. I've heard of it but didn't really bother checking more deeply into it as I assumed it would only show results rendered in IE, considering it's from Microsoft and all.

A normal text editor (I use TextMate) and a bunch of browsers should be all you need. Then add in nice plugins for firefox like Web Developer and Firebug and you should be set.

I'll try to dig out the link for you but there is also an online service that allows you to submit a URL for testing on a mac and it will display a screenshot of the result - good for testing against Safari.

iCapture is very slow. It takes hours if not days to view your result. There's also http://browsershots.org/ but if has the same problem.

Luckily the mac browsers are pretty standards compliant. If you make sure your site works in FireFox and Opera then it'll work on the mac as well.

I use my own program, along with Notepad2. Notepad2 has syntax highlighting for HTML and PHP, that's all I need.
