But because that day is still a way off (if it will really come at all), testing your design the advanced browsers as well as legacy browsers is a necessary part of any project. The old-school way to test code was to load your website on as many computers as you could find, using as many different combinations of browsers and operating systems as possible. That was fine if you had access to a bunch of different computers (and had some time to kill). But there are much more efficient ways to test across browsers, using either free or commercial Web services and software.
Free Cross-Browser Testing Good news: very powerful free testing tools are available for Web designers today. Adobe BrowserLab Browsershots SuperPreview (Free and Commercial) Access for All – Swiss foundation for accessible technologies - Freeware: PDF Accessibility Checker (PAC) PDF-Accessibility-Checker (PAC 2) The freeware program PAC provides a fast way to test the accessibility of PDF files.
PAC supports both experts as well as end users conducting accessibility evaluations. C mobileOK Basic Tests 1.0. If an HTTP request does not result in a valid HTTP response (because of network-level error, DNS resolution error, or non-HTTP response), FAIL If the HTTP status indicates redirection (status code 3xx): Do not carry out tests on the response If the response relates to a request for the resource under test, or any of its Included Resources (see 2.4.7 Included Resources):

Abstract These guidelines explain how to make Web content accessible to people with disabilities. This is a reference document for accessibility principles and design ideas. This document is meant to be stable and therefore does not provide specific information about browser support for different technologies as that information changes rapidly. This document includes an appendix that organizes all of the checkpoints by topic and priority.
"Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0" is part of a series of accessibility guidelines published by the Web Accessibility Initiative. Status of this document 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Google Demo - Gmail Signup.
