IETester

February 9th, 2009

IETester is an indispensable tool when debugging css or javascript. It have all
the rendering and javascript engines of IE8 beta 2, IE7 IE 6 and IE5.5 in one nifty package.

I used to rely on IE7 and a standalone version of IE6 for my testing, as Windows makes it hard to have more than one instance of Internet Explorer on the system.
I didn’t want to break a working environment to install the beta versions of IE8, with this tool I can finally do some testing and see what IE8 is good for. IETester works on both XP and Vista, it is still an alpha so there is some bugs.

Resultatet (selvfølgelig shoppet litt):
card

Bortsett fra at bildet er noe strukket er jeg ganske fornøyd med resultatet.
