[quote=David Wilson]I found this site while surfing, it takes your URL, and over a couple of days takes screen shots of your website using different browsers. A good tool if you do not have many browsers installed on your computer for testing.

Want a favicon for your site?
This site will take a picture you have and convert it to a favicon. You can even have animated favicons...

Here's another favicon site - you can either upload a png or make your own right there and check how it looks

Ahhh - and lets not forget the most helpful place on the web - the W3 validator

http://validator.w3.org/

Find errors in your code - having an error free site will please the search engines and make your pages load faster.
Have fun
