MyLynx Webpage Checkers
NOTE: This page lists software and free online tools that MyLynx is using or has used to build webpages.
  Data last updated 2/4/08  
We try to use all browsers occationally so that we can see how are pages display. For example the droplists we used to use worked with IE but not with Foxfire.
1) Netscape Navigator 9 - NOTE: Support for this browser will end 3/1/08
2) Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 - We are still using IE 6 on most computers
3) FoxFire / Mozilla Fox Fire - We use this on a regular basis
4) Opera - We had used this browser prior to finding Foxfire, as it no longer ever shows up as a browser being used to find out site.
Our browser stats for the week ending 1/26/08
1) IE - 30%
2) Foxfire/Mozilla - 5%
3) Netscape - 3%
4) the rest are unknown
  HTML Tools
For us websites are about information and search results, not what 'cool' stuff some web developer can dream up. I have never yet watched an intro or flash is there is a 'skip' option, again I am on that website looking for information not to watch their logo go in circles.
1) HotMetal 6- This HTML tool is no longer supported, but this is the one we were self taught on and find its tools and layouts are very user friendly. However it does limit us to not being able to use all the 'flash' now available.
2) Dreamweaver - Version 6 - We have tried using this program many times over the last five years and have never had the patience to learn how to use it.
3) FrontPage 2000 - Again, we did not feel that FrontPage was as easy to learn as HotMetal. We have not tried the new versions.
4) FREE - Open Office 1.1 - We quit using this tool as soon as we found that saving changes in this tool made the page not compatable with HotMetal
