How do you guys test all the necessary IE versions for your themes on a mac (by not using a virtual machine or bootcamp).

There is Winebotler but ie8 does not work… and ietester does not work at all…

Is there any way to test ie6,7,8 on a mac or do I need a virtual machine?

The only other thing I know of is Adobe Browser Lab... but that just sends back screen shots, which in turn sucks if you are trying to test any type of scripting…

You’re best bet is to purchase some VM software or get a test box and strip it down as much as you can to just the IE browsers…

Is IETester supported on Mac? If it is, I totally recommend it. It’s amazing!

I agree with webdesigndeluxe, although I noticed that IEtester doesn’t render exactly the same so it happened to me to fix some spacing problems for nothing :(

I use Parallels. I don’t really trust browserlabs or any of those. Just a personal preference… I’d rather see it in an actual browser, in Windows.
