How do you test your sites in IE while working on a mac? only via paralells and alike? crossover is not an option since I'm on a PPC...
please list your suggestions. Thanks
I got the studio to buy a cheap laptop and installed some third party application which allows you to run IE 5- IE 7 on it.
You don't on PPC I'm afraid. The beauty of an Intel machine is it's a Mac and a Windows PC in one.
I don't test anything in IE Mac nor should you. It'll give you grey hair.
does user agent switcher extension for FF do anything useful?
You could always use an old version of VMware with xp installed...
You really need to get a testing station, only sensible way to go about it.
Can I reach a site on a localhost (MAMP) via VMware?
We also have a Clapped out PC in the corner of the studio which has IE 6 & IE7 to test functionality
your best bet is to get a crappy old PC.
This will let you test on IE and also for shitty spec computers if that is a concern.
i use VMWare, then have a virtual XP machine for full on legacy "Imagine if the user is a fucking moron" IE6/IE5 testing then a Vista VM for 7/8
works fucking brilliantly and I can even set up cmd+R in Textmate to refresh all the IE browsers and my local firefox/safari/opera in one keypress
Get a crappy PC from a friend for FREE.
get a crappy PC and a KVM switch, that way you can use your Mac Keyboard and Monitor, just switch the KVM knob to MAC or PC. You will have to either upload files or put them on a USB stick
Is this a useful way to spend time? Do people who use Mac IE have any money?
