Testing Sites Against IE 6, IE 7, and IE 8 (beta 2)

Microsoft has updated the Virtual PC hard disk images that let you view your sites in IE 6, IE 7, and IE 8.  This is handy for scenarios like mine where a client's Web application officially supports only IE 6 but I want the latest and greatest on my own machine.

  • I've found DebugBar's IETester to be very hand for this scenerio.
