Is it possible if you do not have such browsers installed for testing ?
Esp., for browsers used by Mac computer

The first time I saw my sites on a different computer - at an internet access kiosk at a mall - I almost died!!
Spent months re-doing everything!
Even if someone does something as simple as their browser doesn't open in a FULL window, my sites look yucky! To me anyway.

How can a webmaster check how a webpage/site will appear across the many types of browsers?
Some of my CSS fails its beauty in certain browsers

There are quite a few services where you can do this. They aren't cheap, though. Here are a couple:

I have the 3 most common Windows browsers installed on my PC. If I was worried about Mac, Linux etc. I'd probably just buy a used machine or 2 and just use it for testing.
Tried this site. You have to wait a bit, it won't show you all the different browsers,.....but it's free.

I once saw some of my CSS in IE and almost felt like giving up
I'm still at it though ...

Here is one good tool if you use firefox that will keep you from having to switch back and forth between IE and Firefox. I also hear they are adding one for netscape.

I also installed firefox on my workstation last monday and had a look at my sites and spent the rest of the week fixing my sites :>(MERCHANTS: Start showing your coupons directly on your site, that way your shoppers will stop leaving your site looking for them!! If not then remove your Coupon Box!!
August 31st, 2006, 11:48 AM #10Try the specifying DOCTYPE on each HTML doc
Many people do not know or ignore specifying DOCTYPE on top of each HTML document.
Many of the frustration of browser behaviour difference can be address with DOCTYPE.
When DOCTYPE is specified, browser will not engage in their 'quirk' mode.
Quirk mode means the capability to guess and fix error within your HTML page.
Each browser quirk mode is different.
IE has one of the best capability to make your page looks good. FireFox is a bit more strict even in its 'quirk' mode.
Again... specifying DOCTYPE will make your HTML look and feel closer across multiple browsers.

That's a good tip ... I just wish browsers weren't so "quirky"

For testing PC on the mac, if you've got a new Intel one you can use CrossOver. You can install IE 6 or 7 and run it on your mac, without windows! Pretty spiffy!

all you need to check for is firefox, other than IE. If it works on firefox, 99% chances are that it will work on safari for the mac whose webkit technology is just like the gecko engine used by firefox and other mozilla browsers like camino and netscape (and if it works on safari, it also works on konquorer on KDE linux, which uses a similar technology)Join The [B][URL=http://www.shareasale.com/shareasale.cfm?merchantID=10705]Giftshoppingzone.com[/URL] [/B] Affiliate Program on SAS - [B]10% on sales , Unlimited cookie, over 15,000 products in datafeed![/B]

I don't know about that ashok...I've seen some major differences between firefox and safari, expecially dealing with placement and layout issues. To be 100% sure, test test test test test!

I run into problems when a site I am creating looks good in Firefox but looks awful in IE

How can a PC user check if a site looks good in safari?

Well, the differences between IE and the rest of the browser world is vast. The others are more similar. But, it can't hurt to check everything you can, including Netscape, Safari, Opera, etc...
I've caught a few things using those lesser known browsers from time to time.
