Last I checked Firefox doesn't pass the Acid3 test either though - 94/100...
It's not a financial thing - in fact I'm running it all off a Mac Pro, with XP running through Parallels for IE6 & IE7. But it would be a pain in the ass to have to run 2 VMs (one with IE6 & IE7 the other with IE8) *just* for checking my web pages.
Maybe it's just me being lazy, but it would make a huge difference if I could check all three main browsers in the one VM...
Does anyone know if it is possible to run IE6, IE7 and IE8 on one system without multiple VMs for my web site testing..?
I've been using MultipleIE http://tredosoft.com/Multiple_IE for testing in IE6 & IE7 alongside each other, but it is not compatible with IE8 and it looks like there is no intention to make it so...
Am I just gonna have multiple VMs or is there a more elegant solution?
and the steam cannon - they wanted to get it up to 200PSI, but time conspired against them and it only got to 65PSI. The cannonball travelled a mile, it might well have hit the San Francisco suburbs if they'd tripled the PSI..!
and the chicken cannon firing at non-birdstrike approved windshields.
We all make miscalculations!
