Today it’s time [you] take a very close look at your blog in a very broad way. Presumably you see your blog pretty often. But let’s face it, how often do you visit your blog from the same browser, on the same computer, using the same monitor with the same resolution settings? That’s a pretty narrow viewpoint!So at the suggestion of Beth Knittle, I used http://browsershots.org/ to check the browser compatibility of my blog through what is formally called a cross browser test. Using the data about my blog from Google Analytics, I learned that my visitors use FireFox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera and Chrome to view my blog. I then queried http://browsershots.org/ to take screenshots of my blog in each of those browsers. These are the results at 640 pixels wide:
I'm surprised by the results. Apparently you do not see what I see when you're visiting my blog from different browsers. I would love allocate more time to play with my site for your viewing pleasure, but time is scarce right now. But as @Teach42 stated in his blog, today’s challenge is to KNOW. I now KNOW. BTW - I also now know what my blog looks like in an RSS feed. Thanks to @Sue Waters for suggesting that you should subscribe to your own blog. It's like looking at yourself from the outside in, instead of the inside out. Do you see what I see?
