The Holy Grail of IE Testing

I have finally discovered a way to test old versions of Internet Explorer that doesn’t suck. This setup allows you to test authentic versions of IE6, IE7, and IE8 without the need to boot up virtual machines. It also allows you to have a debug bar in each of these versions so you can actually log errors without crashes.

You will need:

  1. A computer with Windows XP
  2. Utilu Internet Explorer Collection
  3. CompanionJS

Just install those 3 things in that order, set up Remote Desktop Connection and you’re all set.
