Cross Browser Compatibility Testing

Cross Browser Compatibility Testing

Cross browser testing is a type of compatibility testing designed to ensure that a web application behaves correctly (sometimes identically) in several different browsers and/or browser versions.[Source]

Cross Browser Testing Tools:

1. Adobe Browser Lab
You can have it's complete set of feature list here and other FAQs on subscriptions and access here.

2. Browsershots
Browsershots makes screenshots of your web design on different operating systems and browsers. It is a free open-source online web application providing developers a convenient way to test their website's browser compatibility in one place. When you submit your web address, it will be added to the job queue. A number of distributed computers will open your website in their browser. Then they will make screenshots and upload them to their central dedicated servers for review.
