How to Preview Pages in Many Web Browsers in Dreamweaver

By Janine Warner

When you’re using Dreamweaver to design web pages for the broadest audience on the web, it’s best to test your site by previewing the pages in a variety of web browsers. The following steps walk you through the process of previewing the same web page in multiple browsers:

  1. Open a web page that you want to preview in Dreamweaver.

  2. Choose File→Preview in Browser, and select a web browser from the list of browser options.

  3. Study and test the page.

    Carefully test all links, rollovers, and other special effects to make sure that the page appears the way you want it to in this browser.

  4. Close the browser window and return to Dreamweaver to make any necessary changes to the page.

    Often, you can make the page look better with minor changes, such as swapping the position of an image with a block of text, or adding a paragraph return using a <p> tag after a video.

  5. Preview the same page again in the same browser to make sure the changes you made had the desired effect.

    Return to Dreamweaver to make further changes as necessary.

  6. Follow Steps 2–5 to preview the same page in another web browser.
