Expression Web Super Preview – Beta

with 3 comments

Super Preview showing IE7 and IE 6 side-by-side.Yesterday at Mix 09 the Expression Web team put out a public demo of something they call Super Preview. Essentially this allows you to preview initial browser page output over multiple IE versions. I  installed IE 8 today, and I can preview IE 8, IE 7 ( in IE 8’s IE7 emulation mode), and IE 6 which I thinks renders using a cloud service. Here’s the link: http://www.microsoft.com/expression/try-it/superpreview/

Works great. It even renders the IE8.js corrections applied.

 

Note: The final version that ships in Expression Web 3 will support FIreFox and other browsers. I am wondering if they will maintain Super Preview as a free download after EW 3 ships and if so with what features supported.
