IETester and/or Browserlabs are not necessary, as you can use IE’s developer tools by pressing F12 . This will allow you to preview the DOM and browser mode of IE7 , IE8 and IE9 (). () if you’re using it form IE9 of course.

IETester saves some time with the “open link in IE TESTER – all versions of IE” option. Plus it does IE6 (and strangely, IE5 .5)

No one cares about IE6 .

The original poster asked for IE6 ,7,8,9 so that’s why I brought it up. ;-)

I’ve also noticed that F12 in IE show some issues that are not visible in IE Tester. Not sure where is the truth but these two sometimes show in different ways.

Windows 7 IE8 ( IE9 with IE8 developer mode ) showed my slider working perfectly. I uploaded, then got a few angry customers telling me that it does not work in IE8 …........

So I grabbed my old windows xp laptop with native IE8 and the customers were right – it did not show the thumbnails at all.

So my suggestion – try it on the real thing! not simulators….

I’ve always used IECollection by Utilu – it just feels much more native than IETester, so I find myself trusting the results much more. Perhaps I should consider getting a Windows 7 virtual machine, though, as XP doesn’t run IE9 :|

+1 ;) utilu IE Collection its Cool :D
