Multiple browser support???
In QTP, I have to record a web page in IE6 and have to run the script in Firefox1.5 & Netscape8.
I have recorded the script in IE6 and tried running the script in other browsers, but was not able to proceed.
Scripts recorded in IE 6 and firefox/netscape is totally different,when i recorded the same page in different browsers
I came across in QTP guide, that " Script recorded in one browser can run in other supported browsers".
Please give the solution to solve this problem as my requirement is to test the application in different browsers. so script has to be made generic across.
Please help me in this Regards ASAP.

My 2 cents ON...
Tread lightly and think hard about investing time normalizing even a small number of scripts across 2 browsers, let alone 3 or more.
Rather, use some light manual testing through some of the primary workflows to "bless" the non-MS browsers as "compatible". Let the very small number of customers using the non-MS browsers (MS owns like 95% of the market on Windows) find the incompats in the deep or lightly used application workflows.
Invest the time saved--an hour, ten or 1000--automating more test cases using the IE browser--thereby improving automated test coverage, as I feel it is better to have 100 automated test cases that only run under the MS browser than 50 that run under MS, NS and FF.
Don't drink the kool aid about seamless cross-browser compatibility, no matter the tool vendor--it's a fool's errand.
