Maybe this is on the site already, but I'm going to ask directly. How do you guys/gals test your scripts or websites on all browsers for compatibilty. I'm new to this and would like to know. For the most part I've found that Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera do alright. But Internet Explorer is a pain in my neck sometimes. How do you test your code for older IE browsers?

I'm struggling with acquiring the same consistent table size across all three primary browsers as shown below. http://i41.tinypic.com/izxrtu.jpg - Chrome http://i43.tinypic.com/24yctw6.jpg - Firefox http://i39.tinypic.com/2ceg3lj.jpg - IE I'm not sure if it's a coding issue or a table issue, but here's the primary CSS: body{ background-image: url(../DefaultBackground.png); background-repeat:repeat-x; background-color: #FFFFFF; border: 0; margin: 0; } #maincontainer{ width: 980px; margin: 0 auto; } #topbar{ height: 54px; font-family: Verdana; font-size: 12px; color: #FFFFFF; } #topbar table{ border-collapse: collapse; } #firstdivleft{ float: left; width: 430px; } #firstdivright{ float: right; width: 550px; } #seconddivleft{ float: left; height: 83px; width: 430px; position: relative; } .floatbottomleft{ position: …

Hi I would like to make more use of the browser developer tools. However, there is little documentation that I can find. I am sure that someone must have written a simple guide to error checking using these tools. I suppose there is no market for a book. Foyles bookshop was, and may still be, the largest bookshop in the World and back in the 1960s the English department was the largest but then the Computer department took over. Computer books become obsolete quickly. Unfortunately, that means that help in using programs is decentralised and finding help depends on typing …

Web browsers use and store cookies in many different ways. First each browser stores the cookies differently. For example IE stores each cookie as a separate file in the cookies folder. Firefox stores the cookies saves all of the cookies within a single file in the users profile. Also each Web Browser has a size limit to how many cookies it can store. That means that that if the limit is exceeded then the browser will start dumping the older cookies and can cause the page to fail. Sometimes webpages failing when the browser has to dump older cookies. I …

Although Mozilla's Firefox and Google's Chrome browsers get a lot of attention in the media, Apple's Safari browser is not too shabby in comparison. The one thing it unfortunately lacks is robust security. Given that so much computer activity revolves around the browser these days, security is the last place you'd want to see sub-standard features. InfoWorld's Roger Grimes took and [URL="http://www.infoworld.com/article/09/01/30/04TC-safari-security_1.html"]in-depth look at Safari[/URL] and says that even though it has strong pop-up blocking and anti-phishing tools, it's rife with numerous security flaws. "[S]ecurity is not Safari's strong point. Unfortunately, 26 separate vulnerabilities have been announced since March 2008, …

I am making a page which pulls from the user's browser their preferred language, via the Request.UserLanguages....which returns a two letter code (ex. "en") or detailed code (ex. "en-GB"). I basically get the string of user languages (they are in order of preference) and store them in a string array. Then I use a loop to check if the language code in the first position of the string array is any of the codes for a certain language (another string array hard coded in). Is there a better way to do this? I'm noticing increased load time and am worried …

I need some help with sizing an image in height. My page is tzr.ro, and as you can see in some browsers such as explorer and chrome the image height differs. So i have this small piece of code that i need to adjust: img { max-width : 350px; height : 100%; border : none; } So if you could give me a hint on how to modify this, I'd appreciate it :) Thanks!

When loading up any browser, all the text and pictures display normally, but the graphics buttons and pointers and outlines etc. do not show up. It must be a problem independant of the browser. All other programs display correctly. I was using an nVidia gForce 6100, but just tried changing to an nVidia nForce 8400 with 512Mb. Same results. I suspect a registry setting has been changed but I don't know for sure. Anyone else had this before?

Well, I guess that's all. =) Anyway, thanks for the help! =) If you know something more about toolbars that's perfectly acceptable, so please feel free to write it down! =) Thanks everyone who helps! =) Best regards, me

I know there has been lots of discussion about how to make an entire website render centre screen, regardless of monitor size or format (e.g. widescreen). It seems most answers rely on use of tables, which we're repeatedly told is an outdated approach to layout. Also the <centre> tag is dead and burried. I use layers to build my pages - no tables or frames - I guess I'm comfortable in the layer space because I grew up with layering in Photoshop. Do you think I can make a web page appear automatically centred in a browser? You guessed right, …

Unfortunately, when I put the --enable-extensions in the target, I still get the message that says "Extensions are not enabled." How can I get rid of this message forever, and how can I download extensions? Thank you!

Yes, I'm afraid it's true; Firefox is the most popular browser out there. Standing at this moment at over 11.5 millions downloads since its production release Tuesday, June 17. How can I make such a sweeping statement? It is the most popular browser ever because of the number of voluntary downloads. Firefox doesn't come standard on any OS--although a few Linux distributions package it in by default. (Note the word [I]voluntary[/I] above. Internet Explorer may enjoy more installations but it's shoved onto every Windows computer by default and you really have no choice in the matter). Wow, I'm overwhelmed with …
