I’m looking for the easiest and fastest way to have my design tested for cross browser compatibility. How do you usually do that? is there any standalone app out there that helps? Do you only use online apps that generate screenshots? Any suggestion will be much apreciated.

I wouldn’t really say there is an easiest or fastest way to do cross browser testing. You can use a screenshot service but they don’t let you interact with the site you’re testing so that’s immediately out of the question for me.

For some more info, check out an article I wrote for net.tutsplus.com on this subject – http://net.tutsplus.com/articles/web-roundups/13-ways-to-browser-test-and-validate-your-work/

You just have to run it through each browser you can.

I develop in Firefox 3.5 on Mac, then try Safari and Opera.
Then I load up Windows and try Chrome, Firefox 2 (sometimes, it’s worse than IE6 ) and I use IE Tester which gives you Internet Explorers 5.5 to 8 (don’t test 5.5 though, that’d be a nightmare).

Be careful with IETester. It displays html, xhtml and css perfectly so its fantastic for checking your layout, but it sometimes throws up errors for javascript that aren’t real errors. For example I had a site that IETester would show error messages for in its IE8 tab even though it worked perfectly on the real IE8 .
