Alkaline browser testing

Litmus has announced Alkaline, a cross-browser testing tool that allows Mac-based website designers to preview their site designs on 17 different Windows browsers, without leaving the Mac interface or installing additional software. The service connects to a grid of remote Windows-based computers to obtain the screenshots. Users can also test sites from within Panic's Coda or Macromate's TextMate coding tools.

Websites are tested in Internet Explorer versions 1 through 8, Firefox versions 1 through 3, Flock, Google Chrome, Netscape versions 7 through 9, Opera versions 7 through 9, Safari 3.1 for Windows and Sea Monkey. Users can also test pages on Firefox or Konqueror for Linux.

Alkaline requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and can be downloaded directly from the company for free. Customers can view IE7 or Firefox 2.0 for free, while access to all 17 browsers can be obtained for $50 a month. A 24-hour pass is also available for $24.
