      IE NetRenderer – Browser Compatibility Check

      Finally I found a free alternative to browsercam. Now that I have only IE7 installed it’s difficult to solve CSS problems in IE6. Browsercam : $40 per month. Litmus : $50 per month.

A lot of times I get disconnected and the wait time is way too high. Can anyone recommend Litmus?

        I always knew this would be technically possible, just practically pretty difficult to accomplish.

        Someday, I believe, it will be offered world wide, and it will include the full DNA string, picture, and videos of important moments in that person’s life.
