Chapter 6. Launching Your Online Store > Choosing the Right Software

Choosing the Right Software

All online stores are Web sites, and Web sites need tools to help with development. As a store owner, you might decide to hire a firm or bring in an individual to develop your Web site. But this book is also about keeping costs down and flexibility up. Even if you get a good price for site design and development, there may be times you just want to put up a shot of a new product or change a price. If you're doing it yourself, you'll need good tools as much as you'd need them for more extensive development. That being said, here's what you'll need.

Browsers

The most important piece of software any Net business needs is a Web browser. Because you are now going to deal with people viewing and using your own site, we recommend that you download the two top browsers which, as of this writing, are Netscape Communicator (or Navigator 4.51) and Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0.
