Other New Features
As I mentioned earlier, the SuperPreview Online Service works in essentially the same way as SuperPreview in Expression Web 3; however, the Online Service introduces some new buttons:
- The toolbar has buttons for SuperPreview Online Service and activation. You'll see one button or the other, depending on whether you've activated the Online Service.
- A button has been added that launches the SuperPreview Options dialog (see Figure 10).
Figure 10 Click the SuperPreview Online Options button to manage your account.
The SuperPreview Options screen now contains the following features:
- Server Status. Use this option to check the status of the Online Service.
- Packaging. Lets you use the remote browser with your intranet sites to ensure that they'll be displayed correctly.
- Account Management. This option can deactivate or delete your SuperPreview Online Service account.
The days of needing multiple computers, operating systems, and browsers to test your web pages are over! The SuperPreview Online Service lets you do all your testing from your PC, and you can fix the problems and retest without having to run around from machine to machine. Now you'll know immediately how compatible your web pages are in the browsers most commonly used by your visitors, and you'll be able to fix layout problems before launching the site.
