IE5.5, IE6 to IE8 emulator for Windows Vista/Windows 7/XP to check your Website compatibility ~ IETester

ietester-logo If you are a web-developer moreover a Web-Designer, then you must have tried to make your site cross browser compatible [i.e., to make your site look good under all the possible web browsers]. Obviously, making a cross browser compatible site is not an easy job, especially with our so called Internet Explorer. There are so many parameters to think of, while making a site to look similar in older browsers like Internet Explorer 6 and so…

Now, even if we have all the knowledge to hack the design to fit in older browsers like IE 6, then also it requires loads of testing, and here the pain comes. If we are using an older version of Windows XP, then it is good, but what if we are using newer XP with latest IE or newer OS’ like Windows 7 or Windows Vista? We can not get IE 6 interface on these OS’ easily!

So, we are going to talk about a software [obviously freeware], namely IETester, which does the above job easily in any windows environment! Read on to know more and the download link…
