I’m a graphics (minimal tech) guy struggling to find an easy way of testing Internet Explorer on my Mac. I don’t have access to a Windows PC, and I don’t want to spend any money to test IE.
Obviously Chrome, Firefox, Opera (and Sarari) are interchangeable between the Mac and Windows OS. I can’t seem to find a clear method to test Internet explorer on a Mac. I wouldn’t use IE for any other reason and really don’t want to fork over any money to Microsoft if I don’t have to.
I found this tutorial which seems nicely written and detailed about how to do this. In a nutshell it explains all I need is a copy of VirtualBox (free virtualization SW), and a developer copy of Windows 8 (free? really?) and I can test IE10 no problem. Anyone else tried this approach? Does Microsoft dumb down IE in the developer copy? Is there a better/easier way before starting down this path?
