Web developers! Get ready. I was myself thinking that IE8 will drive developers mad having already facing compatibility issues with 6 and 7. But look what Microsoft has to offer? How many times have you had to debug your web pages on multiple machines running different versions of Internet Explorer? Or had to wait for a slow web service to return renderings of your pages? You don’t have to do that anymore.

Now you can debug your pages on multiple versions of Internet Explorer on the same machine that you use for development. Expression Web SuperPreview for Internet Explorer is a stand-alone visual debugging tool that makes it faster and easier to migrate your sites from Internet Explorer 6, 7 or 8. With Expression Web SuperPreview, you can ensure that your Web sites work correctly in Internet Explorer 8 while also maintaining compatibility with earlier versions of Internet Explorer. You can view the pages side by side or as an onion-skin overlay and use rulers, guides and zoom/pan tools to precisely identify differences in layout. You can even compare your page comp to how the targeted browsers render the page.

    @Vasya: Alright… alright.. You win. Guys please have this software: BrowserSeal for compatibility testing. Thanks.

    I hope you understand that there is a difference between free service and free preview. For the record, BrowserSeal beta, i.e. preview, version is free as well.

    What does BrowserLab cost?

    * There is no charge to use BrowserLab during the limited free preview. It will remain free through the end of 2010. In early 2011, we plan on offering this service as a subscription of $10-20USD per month, which will include Adobe InContext Editing. There will be no limit to the number of web pages a user tests.

    @Vasya: Okay. Thanks. Adobe Browser Lab is free. Have you checked it? You need an free account with Adobe to use that.

    No, it’s not free. But neither is Superpreview. Moreover, I can assure you that when final versions of BrowserSeal and Expression Web will be available, the former will be significantly cheaper :)

    The same goes for Adobe BrowserLab – it is definitely not free.

    @Vasya: Anhaan. That’s not free. Besides there are two more powerful free tools:

    There is a new web browser screenshot application (www.browserseal.com) that you may find useful which is not limited to IE. It currently supports FF, IE and Safari. It is still in beta, so more features and new browsers will be added in the new future.

    Fully functional free beta version is available for download from http://www.browserseal.com
