Site in different monitor resolutions


Sometimes I would like to see a site I am still constructing, in at least two or three different monitor resolutions, but without altering this at desktop properties. Is it possible? is there any program to accomplish this?


Who is Participating?

Sure. I suggest the easiest way is to keep your monitor set to the highest resolution you want to view it in, and just re-size your browser window to the appropriate dimensions for lower resolutions. If you use Firefox (and every web designer should), the Web Developer extension ( has a wonderful array of tools for a designer, including a re-size tab, which allows you to set the browser as if it were a different resolution.

Microsoft, always quick to jump onto a good bandwagon when they see one, has a beta Developer Toolbar, which also has that capability.
