Hi

I don't have mac installed in my machine.
but i need to test a web page which should support IE and Netscape in mac.

Is there any browser simulator available for testing a HTML web page.
so that i can test how it executes in different browsers in a single screen, instead of installing different browsers/different platforms.

Thanks in advance

Regards
Senthil

"mac" is not a software product which you can install on a PC, it's a completely different machine (Apple Macintosh), with one of several similar operating systems. To test how your browser pages appear on a mac, you really need access to a mac.

I'm afrid not. Although I'm sure we would all love to have access to such a thing, it's not really feasible. To be sure how your pages will look on different versions of different browsers on different platforms, you need to test with them all.
Yes, it's a nightmare

Senthil,
You could download a Mac emulator. There are several free ones - just search for "Macintosh emulator" on Google.
This is one of the links I found. I can't vouch for the quality, but you might give it a try, or do your own search.

Wow. How incredibly cool. I've been looking for just such a gadget to ease myself into learning more about Macs. Thanks!!
