TIP 94: Previewing Pages in Web Browsers

A very important step toward getting the best results from your Web site is to test the pages in multiple Web browsers. In Tip 3 we outline how to set the browser preview preferences, and in this tip we explain how to invoke the Preview in Browser feature.

Preview in Browser without Opening in GoLive

To launch a page into a Web browser directly from the Site window without first opening the page in GoLive, select the page in the Files list and then click the Preview in Browser button in the toolbar.


A button called Preview in Browser resides in the main toolbar and is easily accessible at any time . To preview a page in a browser, open a page and then click the Preview in Browser button. The browser specified as the default (in the Browser Preferences) for previewing is the one that will launch. If you have additional browsers listed in the preferences, you could launch one of them by choosing one from the pull-down list that appears by clicking and holding the Preview in Browser button (Figure 94).

Figure 94. The Preview in Browser button has a submenu that appears when you hold the button down for a moment.


Note

The first time you click the Preview in Browser button, GoLive prompts you to select a default browser if you have not already assigned the Browser Preferences. The default browser is assigned by enabling the checkbox next to the preferred browser name in the Browser Preferences. If more than one browser has a checkmark next to it, clicking the Preview in Browser button will launch the page into each of them simultaneously.


An alternate method of launching the default browser is to press the keyboard shortcut Shift-Command-T on Mac (Shift-Control-T on Windows) or choose File > Preview In > Default Browser.
