Tools - What to use when

Browsers are the obvious tools but have you considered this.

Internet Explorer is one of the worst tools to test website with.

  1. Much like other Microsoft products, IE will try to help you out by fixing coding issues.
  2. IE Supports many proprietary coding tags and scripting languages not supported by Netscape and other browsers
  3. IE does not provide a reliable way to flush the cache ensuring fresh page views upon each page load.

Testing with IE will be necessary but not the final authority (Pass/Fail)
