Will The New AOL Break Your Site?
======================================================================

*** AOL Switching to Netscape ***
Get ready - AOL 8.0 will mean a major change for Webmasters.

Instead of using Microsoft's Internet Explorer, AOL 8 will use
Netscape Navigator Version 6.

Does your Web site work under Netscape 6? Many Web sites don't.


*** 33 Million New Netscape Users ***
In the past Webmasters have often overlooked Netscape 6 because of
its small market share.

AOL's switch means you can't ignore Netscape 6 anymore.

With 33,000,000 subscribers, AOL is by far the world's largest
Internet Service Provider.


*** Major Changes, Major Problems ***
NN6 is a complete re-write of the old Netscape browser and won't
tolerate many common HTML errors.

If you use JavaScript to create drop-down menus or scrolling text on
your site, your site is especially vulnerable.  Take the Browser Photo
tour and see how different browsers and computers can destroy your
Web page.

Take the tour now:

*** Test Your Site Now ***
Browser Photo tests your site under Netscape 6 on both the PC and
Macintosh!

We'll show you actual snapshots of your pages as they appear under
16 Web browsers and computer combinations.

Don't lose visitors because of broken pages? Visitors blame the Web
site, not the browser.

Browser Photo is the best way to make sure your site displays
correctly for everyone browsing the Web.


*** But I've Tested With Netscape 4... ***

Testing with Netscape 4 doesn't mean your site will work under the
new Netscape 6.

NN6 is a complete re-write of the old Netscape browser, pages that
work well under the old browser may be broken under NN6.


*** Award Winning Tool ***
Browser Photo was nominated for WebTechniques
Design Tool of the Year!


Why? Because there's no other service like it.
Browser Photo is the only service that shows actual photos of your
Web site on different browsers and computers.
