Why use this instead of the setup that I use for years?: a WinXP virtual machine and this IEs collection: http://www.askvg.com/how-to-run-multiple-internet-explorer-v... - you end up with one VM and IE 3 - 8.

...and since I use Win7 for work I was tempted to try http://www.my-debugbar.com/wiki/IETester/HomePage but ended up using my old solution out of fear of messy installs/unistalls that such software could do on my "clean" work OS though I'm curious if anyone tried it as it still seems more comfortable and I'd switch to it if I could...




In the past (about four years ago) we had a difficult to debug issue which only manifested in IE on one team member's computer - we traced it down to Multiple IE screwing up cookie handling in some odd manner. So you'd be testing with an environment that's not necessarily 100% the same as your end users.

Yes, I have also seen peculiarities with Multiple IE. IMO, it's decent for casual testing, but you still need to do testing on real installations of your target platforms.

...nice to know such things can happen ...but I've never been bitten by it so far :)
