Chapter 18. Dreamweaver Preferences > Preview in Browser Preferences

18.13. Preview in Browser Preferences

The Preferences dialog box's Preview in Browser category configures the list of web browsers available to preview and debug your Dreamweaver documents.


Browsers list

A list of the browsers configured to preview documents. The default browser, usually Internet Explorer or Netscape, is included in the list if it is present when Dreamweaver is installed. Use the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons to add and remove browsers from the list. Use the Edit button to specify the application path to a browser. You can specify more than two browsers, although only two are accessible via keyboard shortcuts.


Primary Browser

Enable this checkbox for the browser you wish to be your primary browser. Preview a web page in this browser by using File Preview in Browser primary (F12). Debug a web page's JavaScript in this browser by using File Debug in Browser primary, Alt+F12 (Windows), or Opt+F12 (Macintosh). The primary browser is also used to access Dreamweaver Help files under Help Using Dreamweaver (F1).


Secondary Browser

Enable this checkbox for the browser you wish to be your secondary browser. Preview a web page in this browser by using File Preview in Browser, Alt+F12 (Windows), or Opt+F12 (Macintosh). Debug in this browser by using File Debug in Browser secondary, Ctrl+Alt+F12 (Windows), or Cmd+Opt+F12 (Macintosh).


Preview Using Local Server (Windows Only)

This option allows you to use your locally running web server to preview your documents. Using a local server allows you to preview documents with server-side scripts and elements included.
