Anyone use browsercam?

a brief search of this very site brings up this thread

http://www.csscreator.com/css-forum/ftopic8728.html&highlight=browsercam

Personally I'm not a huge fan of the service, it has it's place I guess but is not a substitute for actual testing. There are too many bugs that are highlighted then interacting with the page rather than just looking at it as a static item.

I would agree that it's better than nothing. See what you think using their free trial, before subscribing.

Don't know what platform you're using, but if you're on a Mac, Virtual PC is great to have. The drawback is that you can't run all the Win IEs (easily, anyway -- if anybody has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!). I chose to go with the WinXP -- IE6 combo. It's been a huge help.

The main thing is to test & validate, test & validate [ HTML Tidy highly recommended, but validate your css, too, at the W3C site ], for almost every change you make. That way, it's easier to backtrack and fix the (inevitable) problems.

Good luck!
