Free Webmaster Tool: IE Tester


As a webmaster, we need to check if a website has some css issues with most (if not all) browsers. There are different issues and different solution depending on which browser you choose. However, I find Internet Explorer 7 and below have more often a css issue than any other browser. Although IE8 or the latest version has no (or little) issue, still most people use lower versions. I am not sure why though, but for me IE8 is better and faster.

But anyway, we can not argue if our client’s or his friends still use the older version. All we have to do is code it right and use a IE tester. Before, I have been using some online IE tester but it only captures an image of the front page. And since its an image, you can not explore the lower section of the page as well as the other pages of the site.

The good thing is I found this free software. It’s free WebBrowser that allows you to view and explore the site’s pages in IE9 preview, IE8, IE7, IE 6 and IE5.5 on Windows 7, Vista and XP, as well as the installed IE in the same process.

GIMP: free Photoshop alternative


What is GIMP?

GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.

It has many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc.

GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.

Another good thing is it can open a PSD file.

Do you want to capture colors from your desktop or any website? Well, the good news its really easy with this software and its absolutely free!

All you have to do is install the software and click on New and type on a name you want your colors to be saved. This is important so you can get back to your "palette" by using drop-down menu to retrieve saved palettes.

Then click on any empty white boxes and press CTRL + G to "grab" the colors. If you are having trouble getting the colors because an image is small, just look at the magnifier, which is located at the bottom of this software.
