"WebBrowser for checking compatibility with IE"
The IE Tester takes up 111.7 MB including a host of language additions. During the installation the package provides the option to install both Start menu and Desktop shortcuts. The user is given the choice which folder they would like the setup package to install into; the default folder is shown which can be changed by navigating to a different folder instead.
No toolbars or other misleading software was added during the installation of IE Tester.
The interface has a list of large buttons on the toolbar to let the user open a new tab using one of the Internet Explorer rendering pages. The default (current) Internet Explorer software installed can be used as a base too. All versions of IE page rendering can also be launched at the same time to save clicking too many options one after the other when a full test of all versions is needed; mostly this last feature is likely to be of use to the web developers out there.
- Open a new tab that will render a page in one of five new representations of what Internet Explorer would the page would look like in IE 5.5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.
- Avoid the problem of needing to have multiple version of Internet Explorer installed within Windows for testing purposes and Windows not allowing that.
- Most useful for web site testers, graphics designers, web developers and programmers to test page code and designs across multiple versions of IE.
- Free app
IE Tab is a useful alternative to see how a page will look in Internet Explorer. It is an extension for Firefox and Chrome. It isn't possible to select different versions of Internet Explorer, but it still gives a decent idea based on the currently-installed IE version.
