Hi:

I am working on some html, javascript, and php files.
I often need to test how they work on different browsers, (eclipse internal browser
seems to be a version of IE), such as Firefox, IE, Chrome.
Now if I want to switch I need to go to Window->Preference->General->Web Browser
to select to use internal browser or an external browser, then which
external browser to use, every time I open an html file and then select the file,
right click and then Open With -> Web Browser. Is there a faster way to do this?
Such as just select the file and open with will give me the choice of internal
browser and then a list of external browsers?
Thanks a lot.

There are extensions for browsers to switch engine of them. Also browser
specific developer tools allows to switch between versions and modes. I can't
imagine full list of every browser and version in such menu.
BTW: there were ways to change eclipse internal browser into firefox, but it's
not that easy, requires mozilla xul etc.

Hello,

Although I must confess I dont have a ready answer to your question, It seems like you have an answer to mine, so if it's not too much trouble. to ask Smile

It's actually very simple, I want to develop for html, php and Javascript within eclipse. I have downloaded Helios SR2 for the Mac and have included the plugins for JSEcplipse. (I also have plugins for Subclipse, Android DDMS and some others) I haven't downloaded PDT as they forums kind of hint that they are supposed to have been included in Helios. Is this correct?

However when I try to follow the tutorials, and they say to click on file>new>other>Javascript, I don't have that option. What am I doing wrong? Is there something I should enable?

Also should I dl JQuery plugins , Aptana or Spket?

Thanks for any help that you can offer!

Hi dmc,

it's important for me too.

What do you mean: "Also browser specific developer tools"?

It's some kind of the extension?

Thank you for your advices
