New: Webmail rendering in Firefox


Today we’ve launched a new feature—Litmus now previews your email in web-based email clients using Firefox, as well as Internet Explorer

Not everyone realizes it, but depending on the web browser used to open your email in Hotmail, Gmail, and others, it can be rendered quite differently. Check out this example of a Toys ‘R’ Us email from a recent report on this topic by Smith-Harmon:

Luckily, you can now test for this using Litmus. All of our web-based email clients are available for Firefox testing, in addition to Internet Explorer:

  • AOL Mail
  • Gmail
  • Hotmail
  • Mobile Me
  • Yahoo! Mail

P.S. If you’d like to know how to fix the rendering problem I showed above, check out Smith-Harmon’s report for a handy Hotmail coding tip.
