Adobe Browser Lab logo

Adobe just launched a cool new Flex based product called BrowserLab (formerly meer meer). BrowserLab (http://browserlab.adobe.com) is a Flex application that allows you to load a web page in a variety of popular Web browsers. You can load them in a side by side view, but my favorite is the onion skin mode which overlays one browser version on top of another. Another sweet feature is that this tool is FREE! It only requires you to have an Adobe user account.

I did notice, while on my Mac, that IE 7 WinXP took a lot longer to generate than the others. I assume this is just an early issue that will be addressed soon. There is also an area to load other browser definitions. I haven’t looked into that much, but I hope that means that Adobe will publish some spec on how to load non-standard browser definitions into the application.

This is an amazing tool and I can’t believe it took this long to have this resource available to the mass populous (again for FREE!!). Thank you Adobe! You can also get product updates by following the BrowserLab Twitter page.

PS – I love the logo too! Very clever. I’ll be on the look out for a sticker and/or T-shirt with this one!
