This is probably a really dumb question, so I apologize in advance.
I am an HTML/css noob. I have my site working great in IE 8 and FF, but it seems to have some issues in IE 7 on a friend's older computer. I would like to install IE 7 (and maybe even IE 6???) on my computer alongside IE 8, just to test it on all of the different releases and work on fixes.
Is there anywhere I can download these older versions of IE to run on my Vista computer?
Thanks very much.
If you have IE8 go to Tools -
If you have IE8 go to Tools - Developper Tools. This opens a window similar to Firebug and in that window you can change the Browser mode between IE8 and IE7 and also debug your css.
For IE6 go to tredosoft.com and download a standalone IE6. Don't know how well this works with Vista though as I am a Mac user and run XP on a virtual machine. Or you could try IETester from http://www.my-debugbar.com/wiki/IETester/HomePage
Standalone from Treadsoft
Standalone from Treadsoft didn't work when I tried with Vista but that was a while ago, however the MS VM does come with a IE6 version and is fine for testing even after it has expired
IETester is one of the tools I use
I use IETester and install "Debugbar" tool for debugging with IEtester; works well but doesn't give me the comfort level what I get from Firbug on FireFox. I do use VM sometimes. You can give a try.
