Compare Page Display


Wondered how your web page looks in different browsers before your page goes live?

                  This has been always a pain point for content authors, because each browser displays the content differently. With Contribute CS5, we address this issue by providing ‘Compare Page Display’ option. So, when a user creates a web page or edits it, and, before he publishes the page, he can click the Compare Page Display button. Contribute displays the web page in three of the most popular browsers – IE, Firefox and Webkit (which is the core of Safari and Google Chrome). Now, the user can compare the web page display side-by-side in all the 3 browsers, and make changes, if necessary.
