Google Chrome

Yesterday Google announced they will finally be entering the browser market, and I can only hope Internet Explorer and Firefox are ready.

Google Chrome Comic

The Google browser will be known as ‘Google Chrome’ and hopes to be a better browser that adapts more suitably to the web of today. A lot more detail on the browser can be seen in this comic (38 pages) that Google have released, it goes in to good detail as to what to expect and how the browser handles certain tasks, for example resource management, javascript, and security.

The browser promises stability, security and speed, and I have no doubt that the team at Google will deliver. The browser will apparantly be availble for beta sometime today, so keep an eye out on the official Google blog.

Internet Explorer Issues At A Glance

Back in December I posted about browser compatibility issues and how they render, and more importantly how to take a look at your site in a number of sites really easily. Now the importance of having your site display properly across all major browsers is of the utmost importance, but getting it correct for the most commonly used browser, Internet Explorer, is imperative to the success of your website.

Internet Explorer 7 Logo

Today I came across this handy website which will let you type in any URL and quickly see how your page will appear in Internet Explorer 7 through to 5.5. The IE NetRenderer can be found here, and is well worth bookmarking if you find yourself having troubles with Internet Explorer.

Browser Compatibility

When coding any website it is imperative to check that your code renders in a suitable fashion (preferably valid of course) on all browsers, be it Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer or  Opera  making sure your site is accessible to as many potential visitors is something that can not be ignored; and why should it? If you decided to code for just one browser exclusively you would be denying yourselves could be visitors.

Of course checking that your site looks right in individual browsers can be a chore, so before downloading every browser on the planet make sure your code is valid, sure your code may well be pretty stable but different browsers has a habit unfortunately of rendering code in ;
