  • Check the browsers you want to see your page in;
  • Select the desired screen size, color depth, Javascript and Flash settings;
  • Wait for the tool to generate the screenshots.

    I’m thinking not all of these are available for Mac?

    Very good blog! Hadn’t heard of some of these before but as someone who does website testing I will definitely be looking into this some more! Thanks!

  • Mikey

    I agree, these are essential tools. I knew about browsershots but not the others. Thanks again for wonderful, helpful information.

  • Mike Wilton

    I’ve been using this tool for sometime now and LOVE it. With a background in design I used to use it all the time for new projects I was testing. Now with my focus primarily on search marketing I don’t use it as often, but it’s still a great tool to have in your arsenal “just in case”.
