Anyone bother supporting this browser? Seems like far too much work, never even looked at my site in it before, but it's pretty horrendous, and I can tell just from looking at it that fixing it all will require compromising my site in other browsers, and will be a lot of work for very little return.

My compatibility for my sites is IE5+, Opera7, Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape 7.

Am I right in thinking that N7, Mozilla and Firefox are all identical rendering engines and there's no need to test all 3 all the time?

Has anyone made a website yet where you type in a webaddress and it'll show you what IE5 on mac will display?

Netscape 6

You may want to check www.browsercam.com ... pretty darn expensive at $40/month, but you can test a set of 10 URLs for $10. Might be worth it depending on your needs.

Netscape 6

A good link, and one that I remember from years ago - I may have to try and persuade work to pay for that, certainly cheaper than buying a Mac!

Whilst browser cam is ok, I don't it's any substitute for having a browser to test on to be honest. Many of the problems with layout seem to come when resizing things like text or the browser window. This is something that browser cam just can't hep with I fear, a web page is not just a picture after all.

Of course you can register for a free trial - however 40 bucks a month is quite steep I think for the usefullness it provides.
