If the PC and tablet are on the same network, it is possible. All you'd need to do is use the IP address of the PC to access the site. So instead of accessing it via localhost (as you would on the PC), you'd access it via 192.168.1.2 (example). If the devices are not on the same network, it's still possible to access the PC with the tablet if you setup ...

Microsoft has now launched modern.ie, a website dedicated to testing web pages in Internet Explorer. It includes downloads of virtual machines for testing (although not currently for IE 6): http://www.modern.ie/en-us/virtualization-tools

Adding the height and width attributes to your IMG SRC HTML tag allows the browser to know how much space to leave for an image. Without these values, the browser gives an image no space until the image is loaded, which means anything surrounding the image is adjusted after the image has loaded. http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001158.htm

The browser requests this for performance. Say you have a paragraph of text with an image of 100x100 pixels in the top left corner. Browser builds the page, no image yet, so it builds it with just text The image now loads, and suddenly there's space needed Browser rebuilds the page, with the proper room for the image If you give width and height to the ...

There are a couple of ways you could achieve this, depending on how your test/dev site is set up. You could use a completely separate GA account and UA code - one of the risks with this is that you forget to change the code when you eventually deploy the site (or forget to change it again after some further changes in the future). The other option is to ...

Piwik has a plugin called the 'Visitor Generator' which can generate fake data for testing purposes. It is available here, on the Piwik Plugins Marketplace. You can use it to generate 100% fake data or a mix of fake and real data from your own logs. A blog post giving a features overview with sample commands is here, on the Piwik blog. If you want to just ...

I've always used the favicon generator at realfavicongenerator.net, which allows you to see how your chosen artwork will appear on different devices. There are quite a few options and you can try with their example icon to test. Start with a square SVG for the best results as the site will convert it to the necessary formats and give you a compressed folder ...

Not enough experiments or divergence in the results to be statistically significant yet. Try doing a Google search on AB Testing confidence and work out what sort of confidence level you're at with your experiment. This will give you a much better idea of whether your results are significant or whether you should just let the experiment run longer. ...

Case 1 When you know number of occurrences to be substituted in the existing request: Take a loop counter define it with loop count as the number of occurrences you need to substitute. Insert a CSV data set config as child into it and a Counter (this will generate that many occurrences variable.) Use a beanshell to fetch the values from CSV data set config ...

Figured it out: Set thread group loop to 1. Enter a Loop Controller with desired number of loops after the CSV Data Set Config. Add the HTTP request sampler as a child of Loop Controller and you got it:) Image of config:

Microsoft provides lots of useful tools and virtual machines at modern.ie and they included IE10 too. All you need to do is going to that site and download the right one for your system.

I like to use Normalize.css whenever I possibly can on a new project. It's better than Eric Meyer's CSS Reset in that it actually provides "standardized" styles for elements, as opposed to removing all styles. So yes, it's a great starting point for a new project. You'll want to ensure that the framework or CMS your using won't conflict with it, but it's a ...

It's just a tool. You need to evaluate whether or not it's appropriate to use for yourself. For any given project, you might be using some other elements that conflict with it, for all we know. It's a handy library, but nobody can really make a blanket statement that you should/not use it for every project you do.

Somebody answered one of my questions posting a link to this website. Check it out. I'm not sure if there's a service to preview interactions.

Search engines might … … find your testing website. … index pages from your testing website. … decide that a page from the real site and the testing site are duplicate copies, so they might only index one of those pages. If you are unlucky, they might decide to index the testing page instead of the real page in some cases (especially, if not all of your ...

I'm going to break your question into two parts: Where can I send test email? Send test email to a disposable email address service. [1] These services automatically create an inbox for any email you send to them. You can then read the messages in the inbox through their web site, without registration and without a password. For example, I can send an ...

Is the sending email address in the contact lists of your Yahoo and Gmail receiving accounts? This might avoid the spam treatment.

The easiest way is to modify your hosts file to hardcode the domain name to the new IP address temporarily. See this guide for OS-specific instructions. Don't forget to remove the entry again after you're done testing. Alternatively, you could setup a temporary test subdomain for each site on the new server (test.example.com), set it up as an alias, and use ...

There is no mass checking that I can see. Especially against Google. **WARNING: Google will block asscess for the following reasons: It feels as though you are trying to scrape, reverse engineer SERPs, or submit mass queries by an agent of any kind. This incudes using the Google API. Google will also block IP addresses that appear in some black-lists. Which ...

I'm not sure what your question is aimig at – and your question is also rather broad – Responsive Design is a wide field. You may also consider asking over at http://ux.stackexchange.com – I have the feeling you might get more suitable answers than here. That said I'll try to answer: if you just want to check for 'responsiveness' (yes/no) then media ...

Perhaps the Google mobile friendly test is of use to your study. You can input a URL and the tool tests a variety of responsive parameters. The test also says which parameters have been tested and which have been found not responsive. https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/

Can you post an example email showing what you have been sending? For gmail going into spam and marking a few emails as not spam might do the trick, the same thing should work for yahoo mail.
