Test out PHP online, without having to upload to server or use apache. Great for using if you are trying to do a tutorial and follow along at the same time. ;)

I just found that site a few days ago. It's been really, really useful since.

See how your site would look in IE, even if you don't have IE:

(not that you'd want to or anything...) :P

SauceLabs is what I use for that. It's a full visualizer, which means you can interact with (and even debug!) browsers on Windows, Mac, and Linux going back to IE6.

The free version has a monthly time cap, but it's been incredibly useful nonetheless.

People who care at all about a misinformed segment of their audience.

And those who have not given their clients IE never, (ever, ever) yet.

Lol in IE6 Omnimaga doesn't look as bad as what Netham45 was describing a few years ago. Just the top is messed up.

Also some less tech-savy people will never want to switch from IE6-8 just because they prefer their interface and don't care about the risks.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I've found that sometimes they think switching to a better browser carries risks (since it's software they're installing from the web), and they don't want to do it for fear of trashing their computer somehow.

Yeah, my uncle is still using an ancient version of flash because he thinks he is taking a risk by installing the new version...

Yeah that too. I remember one of the Omnimaga staff was stuck using IE because his dad thought Firefox was a virus. In my bro's case, he got a virus from Opera once and Firefox kept crashing so he switched back to IE. I myself got far more viruses in IE, though.
