Chapter 3. Dreamweaver MX 2004 Site Management > Checking Browser Compatibility

Checking Browser Compatibility

Your target audience will determine what browser versions you should check to make sure all the pages within your site are compatible with a certain browser version. In most cases, you want to make sure that they are at least compatible with a 4.0 browser or later. Very few people use a 2.0 browser, and for that matter, very little on the Web today is even compatible with a 2.0 browser. You may want to make sure your site is compatible with a 3.0, however, if you have a very broad, general audience.

That's why it's very important as a Web developer to test your site in many browsers and on different browser versions. Instead of installing every version on your computer and testing them manually, a command within Dreamweaver performs this task for you. This Dreamweaver command, called Check Target Browsers, has a series of profiles that you test your pages against. Dreamweaver ships with profiles for Netscape Navigator 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, and 7.0. It also ships with profiles for Internet Explorer 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, and Opera (Mac) 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, and 7.0 as well as options for Safari. You can also download additional profiles from the Macromedia Exchange.
