Testing websites on different browsers/platforms

I'm thinking about redesigning my blog and just for curiosity today I tried BrowserShots. It allows you to test any website on 60 different combination of browsers and platforms (35 on Linux, 20 on Windows, 5 on Mac). And as result it takes a screenshot of how the website is rendered. I tried it with 40 default combinations and in 1 hour (the time after which shots in queue expire) it took 34 different shots, from the latest Safari 3.1, IE8 and FF3 to the older IE4. My blog looks as I expected it to be on 30 out 33 browsers: the...

And furthermore, in a month (actually a little bit less) I'm going back to Milano to enjoy the end of northern hemisphere's summer and hopefully to do some good climbing. So it's time to draw a line and make some considerations about the past. First let's speak about the Wellington .NET user group My fellows in Italy knew that even before coming to NZ I was more for a decentralized user...
