After reading the title of this blog post, you could easily be forgiven for not having a clue what this piece of writing will be about. Not to worry, soon, this will all change.
A warning is due, however. Being called the AMIS Technology blog, this place is usually (over)filled with code, code and then some more code. Not this time. Stop reading here, if you are looking for code.
This short article will be about the most overlooked part of software development. And I am not even talking about testing or documentation. No, there is another aspect to software development that seems to be neglected on an even larger scale.
When I saw a meeting request called "IE6 vs Firefox" in my calendar I was preparing for a nice battle to make the interface of this project look the same in both browsers. On my machine, however, I am running IE7 (next to Firefox 2 of course) already for quite some time, so testing could be a bit of a problem. Luckily, there is such a thing as running IE6 in standalone mode, as I’m sure a lot of people already found out.
