What's new

Microsoft Expression Web provides new tools to make sure that the pages in your site work in multiple browsers.

Using SuperPreview, you can preview and compare pages simultaneously in multiple browsers, even in multiple versions of Internet Explorer. You can also compare browser views against a comprehensive mock-up ("comp") image.

You can select individual elements within a page and see details about each selected element, helping you quickly find and fix cross-browser layout and positioning errors.

For more information, see Displaying pages in SuperPreview.

In the Snapshot panel, you can see how your page renders in the browser of your choice, right inside Expression Web. And, just like with other panels, you can move it and dock it wherever you like.

You can add both Microsoft Silverlight and Seadragon Ajax Deep Zoom Composer images to your page in Expression Web from a composition created in Deep Zoom Composer.

For more information, see Adding Deep Zoom images.

Publishing your site with FTP is faster than ever. When you click Publish, Expression Web automatically transfers several files at a time, instead of transferring them one by one, and it transfers them faster.

Also, you can now publish your files over a secure FTP connection, using FTPS or SFTP.

Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross–platform plug-in for delivering rich interactive applications for the web. With Expression Web, you can add Silverlight applications to your web pages.

Expression Encoder Express is now included in Expression Web. You can use it to convert your video to Silverlight and add it to your page. You can even choose a "skin" to customize how the video player appears on your site.

For more information, see Add Silverlight video to a page.

Expression Web supports Windows Internet Explorer 8, so you can update your older sites to be compliant with (and take advantage of) the new technologies in Internet Explorer 8.

Expression Web provides new tools to help you publish content to your site.

You can easily manage multiple sites and remote locations. Publishing files is fast and reliable, and you can publish a site to multiple destinations.
