Alkaline

2.0.214 October 2010

Cross-browser testing tool for Web designers.

Overview

Alkaline is a cross-browser testing tool for Web designers, letting them painlessly test their website designs on 17 different Windows browsers in seconds. Mac-based Web designers are now able to cross-browser test their website designs on Windows Web browsers without leaving OS X. No installation of Windows is required, nor any other additional software.

Alkaline also integrates tightly with Panic\'s Coda, and Macromate\'s TextMate, allowing for instant cross-browser website testing from right inside these popular coding tools.

What's new in Alkaline

Version 2.0.2:
  • Essential update: Uses our new Litmus.com domain name for compatibility.

Requirements for Alkaline

  • Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later

I've been waiting for something like this...but not for $50 a month. Guess I'll just keep firing up the old devil's tower on the other side of the room! For just a couple of months of the $50 price of this "service", you could go out and buy a used Windows machine and load the browsers you wish to test on it.

This would be truly awesome, but for $50 a month. I think $20 would be reasonable.

Not good... You must register for an account to use this app. Granted, there is a free account but it only allows you to test on two browsers. Also, only one of the browsers worked when I tested this app. You cannot zoom the screen-grab so it's essentially useless. To summarize: it's slow, it doesn't work well, it's inconvenient, use Browsershots.

I'm sorry you didn't have a perfect experience with Alkaline. Yes, you do need to register to use it. It's intended as a desktop client for existing users of our service, but I don't think that's made clear from the description. That's my fault, I'm sorry. To zoom the screenshots you simply resize the window - it'll zoom to fit. I like to keep my window quite wide so I can see the screenshots at 100% zoom. I find it works best that way. I had a look in our logs for your account to check the processing times you experienced. I hope you don't mind. It looks like your screenshots were returned within 2 minutes. That's slower than we'd like - we aim for

Don't like new MacUpdate? Back to old design.
