Just the other day I was checking out my sites in different browsers. It’s something I occasionally do whenever I remember to. (rarely) I noticed a few of them, the site looks different in Internet Explorer and some of my banners were all distorted. I am a Firefox user and pretty much never use any other web browser, so my sites always look fine to me. But that’s not always the case for others who are viewing your site or blog through a different browser. Websites usually aren’t compatible with all of them out there, and may not be functional or shown correctly.
You could be turning a lot of your visitors off, losing money, and not even know it. I’ve now learned it’s a good idea to at least make sure your site looks good in Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Safari. Since they are usually the more popular web browsers. Do this everytime you launch a new site or make any big changes to it.
I did some digging and found a totally free service, BrowserShots that will allow you to perform a web browser compatibility test so you know what everyone is seeing no matter what web browser they use.
Your site may look a little different in each browser, which is totally normal. But if it looks really bad, then you probably have a problem in your coding and you should have a designer check it out for you asap.
