Do you have any recommendations for testing IE compatability, on Mac ?

Or is it simply a case of downloading ie8 / 9 etc and using on a mac, I have never tried.

Read this but seemingly mixed reactions and reviews

I have the same problem on Linux but Wine definitely never was on my radar for that.

The reason is, MS-Programs tend to be buggy on Wine. Modern IE seems to be garbage there.

Honestly, the maximum I do for IE is to test HTML and CSS on http://netrenderer.de/ release it and then let the bug reports come in.

Cheers, I may have to open the carton in the garage marked “PC” and fire it up ( shudders ) lol, and test in proper environment
