Test Multiple Versions of Internet Explorer At The Same Time

ie-testerInternet Explorer 6 will just not die. In spite of Microsoft’s attempts to get people to upgrade (and public outcry ) it is still sticking around. As a matter of fact between 15% to 23% of users Worldwide still prefer Internet Explorer 6. Actually, it might not be so much “preference”, but unfortunate corporate business users stuck in a hell which they can’t escape. So what’s a webmaster to do? Thankfully there is a tool created by DebugBar which makes your life easier. What is it exactly? IETester is a free WebBrowser (in alpha) that allows you to have the rendering and javascript engines of IE8, IE7 IE 6 and IE5.5 on Windows 7, Vista or XP all in one spot. In plain English, this means you can see what your website looks like in all these browsers, quickly and easily, with one click. It’s  a real God send to ensure maximum compatibility of any website, especially when you consider all the little CSS differences and the chance you have moved beyond IE6 a long time ago. We highly recommend you take a spin with it and make sure their are no surprises with IE6 rendering.
