Hi Confusion,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you. What is your website built with? Each web browser renders websites differently. This is due to how the browser interprets the code of the website. Typically, you'll want to test your website in multiple browsers to make sure your website displays the same in each browser. Keep in mind too, different versions of the same browser can display the website differently.

There are tools that can help you check cross browser compatibility. One of the tools I use frequently when designing new websites, is Microsoft's Super Preview. It allows me to render the site I'm designing in multiple browsers at once. Keep in mind though, tools like Super Preview are typically used for hand coded websites.

Do you have a URL of the website I can take a look at? Any further details you can provide will help us further assist you.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.

Thanks!

Tim S
