I'm currently developing an automatic cross browser testing system. This system would function as an on-line service - you submit a URL to your site and it shows you under what browsers its displayed incorrectly.

Would like to hear opinions and suggestions

Browser shots already does that.

Not really. They just show you many screenshots, they don't check whether the site is rendered correctly.

Isn't that to be determined by the programmer or the designer? How are you going to determine if it is rendered incorrectly? How would you know that that's not what the designer/developer wanted? By screenshots, they see how the page is rendered in the browser and they determine which browser renders the page incorrectly.

true - how would you determine what 'correct' is?

if you have solid parameters for this, I say by all means go for it - it would be a useful tool.....

Well, I have an idea, but... as I'm planning to make a commercial service based on it, you know...

Just wanted to check whether people find this useful.

What you can do is go ahead and do that system, and then host it on a free host (don't get a domain name yet if you are not sure about this tool) and let people review it. If people like it then get a domain name and a good host and you got it.
