VirtualBox + Windows?

Can you Please do me a favour?

Open up IE (yip old-dusty internet explorer) and press F12. Tell me do you have a IE versions number in the far right of the title bar?

The drop down should have IE7, IE8 and IE9 options. What are the options that it has?

Thanks!

thanks so much!

I take it you're running windows 8? since you have an IE 10 mode.

if possible can you take a screen shot? I'm just not sure whether to purchase windows 7 or 8 as all I need is to test for web dev in IE.

Actually I'm on Windows 7 running the IE10 Release Preview.

I'll take a screenshot next time I restart into Windows.

If you need to do some quick web development, you can download the Windows 8 90-day evaluation and install it in VirtualBox.
