Dear BrowserLab customers, When we originally launched BrowserLab as a free service back in 2009, our customers were struggling with testing their web content across desktop browsers and platforms. Since then with the growth of the importance of mobile devices and tablets, the landscape has changed dramatically. Because of this shift, we have seen the usage of BrowserLab drop over the past year while at the same time our engineering team has been focusing on solving this new challenge with new solutions.
How to Check Your Website with Multiple Browsers on a Single Machine (Cross-Browser Compatibility Checking)To Check Your Site for Cross-Browser Compatibility by Christopher Heng, thesitewizard.com We all know the importance of checking our web pages with multiple browsers, especially when we are designing a new layout for a website. This is the case even if we are writing validated standards-compliant code . The number of extant browsers we need to check with are enormous: Internet Explorer (IE) 7, 6, 5.5 and 5.0, Firefox 2.0 and 1.5, Opera 9 and 8, and so on.
The best strategy for dealing with Internet Explorer 6 is not to support it. Stop. Ok, I feel your frustration. You're a web developer and you're ready to tear your hair out because you have to support Internet Explorer 6, but, to put it tactfully, IE6 doesn't support you. You've spent hours on it, but you just can't seem to get your layout right. I can empathize.
With each new release of Windows Internet Explorer, support for the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) standard has steadily improved. Internet Explorer 6 was the first fully CSS, Level 1-compliant version of Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer 8 is fully compliant with the CSS, Level 2 Revision 1 (CSS 2.1) specification and supports some features of CSS Level 3 (CSS3).

x.getBoundingClientRect() Returns an object that contains the top , left , right , and bottom (all relative to the top left of the viewport) of the combined rectangle of element x . Essentially, the browser calculates all rectangles (see below getClientRects() ), and getBoundingClientRect() returns the lowest (top, left) or highest (bottom, right) values found. IE handles this correctly, provided you accept its incorrect calculation of the individual rectangles. Firefox doesn't round the top/bottom coordinates.

JPEG, a compression algorithm optimized for photographic images, is something we encounter on a regular basis. JPEG is not limited to a certain amount of color (unlike GIF, for example) and is popular due to its variable compression range, meaning that you’re able to more easily control the amount of compression, and consequently, the resultant image quality. In this guide, we will discuss the important things you need to know about JPEG. Quick Overview of JPEG Here is a list of things you should know about JPEG:
