Website screenshots in different browsers

There are two ways of viewing your webpage in different browsers. First and straight forward way is to install every available browsers and open the webpage in each. Second way is to go to a site named  browsershots (link at the end of the post).

In browsershots all you need to do is select your prefered borwsers, type in your web address, submit, and reload the page after a few minutes. I tried with and it was surprising to see screen shots of every browsers I selected. The site went blank in MSIE 4.01 (which I don’t care much as none of my readers actually use the browser). Others look fairly ok with exception of display of YouTube videos that require flash plug-in. Here is the screenshot of the screenshots :

One good thing I like of this website is that one can actually download the pictures in your computer to review each and every browser’s output. Here is what they have to say:

Browsershots makes screenshots of your web design in different browsers. It is a free open-source online service created by Johann C. Rocholl. When you submit your web address, it will be added to the job queue. A number of distributed computers will open your website in their browser. Then they will make screenshots and upload them to the central server here.

Here is the link to the website if you want to try it for yourself.
