Internet Explorer 10 Browser Tester

With the recent release of Windows 8 from Microsoft this past October, there has been a new browser introduced to the consumer called Internet Explorer 10. Just when you thought that you had issues debugging IE7 and 8, we now have a whole new browser that is new and buggy. The thing that blows my mind is that the full version will only reside on Windows 8 machines. That’s right, if you want to test and do any debugging for IE10, you have to purchase a windows machine with Windows 8 installed. There is a “preview” version available for Windows 7, however it is more of an advertisement to get you to upgrade to Windows 8.

Internet Explorer 10 from Mircrosoft If you are like me and don’t want to upgrade to windows 8 or try and install the preview version in windows 7, which will overwrite your existing copy of IE, there is an alternative solution. A company called
Browser Stack http://www.browserstack.com/ offers the ability to preview Internet Explorer 10 using any browser. You can sign up for a free trial, or subscribe for unlimited use for around 20 dollars a month. If you are building a new web site or wanting to test an old site, Browser Stack provides an affordable solution without having to buy a PC, upgrade to windows 8, or take a chance at the unknown.
