Last summer, I made the switch to a MacBookPro as my main web development system. Since then I have been slack in testing my web designs with Internet Explorer. It's time now to start making sure my web designs are cross-platform compatible, not just Firefox-friendly. I have
installed on my Mac with Windows XP and Ubuntu. Running Fusion slows down my system (with 4 GB of SDRAM) so I use it sparingly. However, with Fusion I can test my web designs on the following browsers, all on one physical machine: * Firefox (Mac, WinXP, Ubuntu) * Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8 (WinXP) * Safari (Mac and WinXP) * Opera (Mac and WinXP)
Last month, Microsoft released a beta version of
Expression Web SuperPreview
which allows developers to view browser renderings of websites for Internet Explorer version 6, 7 and 8 side-by-side. You can download a
beta version of SuperPreview
for free. SuperPreview requires you to download and install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, which takes a looooong time. Unfortunately for me, I was unable to get SuperPreview to actually run in my WinXP installation in Fusion. Has anyone here tried SuperPreview? I'd like to know if you are able to get it to install and run, and if so your thoughts on it.
