Microsoft Expression Web SuperPreview – for IE Web Test

This is for Web developers (ASP.NET) who work for cross browser supportBaring teeth. Currently I’m into web development for a client and breaking my head to fix this cross browser issue. In another project, the client is asking for beta browser like IE 8 and Chrome support. In ASP.NET, menus are tougher to fix. Apart from this, if you have coded any DOM manipulation in Java script code, it is not easy to get/set values to tree/list controls/grid.

An easy solution for this is to identify browser type then bunch of code for each browser compatible DOM manipulation(Javascript). Its really time consuming and takes time to test it. This kind of approach boggles me and am not confident at all. But I highly recommend to take care of cross browser support from the prototype development stage itself.

Here is the news from MS regarding Web SuperPreview for IE  (its a visual debugging tool that makes it easier to migrate our Web sites from IE 6 to IE 7 or 8 ), but it would be better if they extend this support to test other browsers also..Currently few of my applications are working smoothly in IE 6 and above..but not sure about IE 8. I’ll post about the pros and cons after checking this too…
