I love having fun at Browserling, so I hired a comedian to write some new, original jokes and one-liners about web developers, web designers, web, and browsers.
Here they are! I hand picked the best jokes:
- What did Times New Roman say to Comic Sans? ... I hate your type.
- You're in a
.classof your own.
- Both my parents are web devs. They named me Bob... They named my brother, Bob12459.
- What was the web developer doing in the bathroom?... Taking a crop.
- You can't tell me what to do - you're not my web developer.
- Say that to my interface!
- If you can't make a web design... you may have a future teaching web design.
- We were designed to be together. Mark it up to fate!
- We sent a web developer to the store to get the newspaper. He came back with The Times New Roman.
- I design websites for people... if you're on a budget, no problem... as long as it's a big budget.
- Don't be self-conscious, but I love looking at your <body>.
Have fun and until next time!
Exciting news everyone! We just created a new logo and design for Browserling!
We put accent on the word "browser" instead of "ling" because Browserling is all about browsers and not lings. ;) Alien ship has a history. In the previous logo the alien ship was illuminating "e" as in Internet Explorer so we decided to use it as Browserling's mascot in the new design.
Here is the new design (click it for full scale image or visit www.browserling.com to see it live).
Just for comparison, here's the old design.
Browserling is an interactive cross-browser testing service that lets you quickly test your webpages in all most popular web browsers - Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Safari.
Until next time!
Exciting news everyone! I love simplicity so I just created a Chrome extension for Browserling. The extension lets you quickly access all the platforms and browsers with one click. No need to go to browserling.com first to start cross-browser testing. Just install the extension and you're ready to go.
Try it out now and let me know what you think!
Give it 5 stars. :)
