    I made the switch to mac a week ago and I am a web designer, and was wondering what way I should go about previewing my webpages in IE to make sure that it works in the main browsers. I already have FF.

    Thanks

    Browsershots is helpful but not at all usefull for testing that the site actually works rather than just displays.
    I think your best bet for accurate testing is to install windows under vmware fusion or parallels so you know that it is really ie rendering it like it normally would rather than just some hack job...

    I use IEs4OSX some times. It's free, but isn't 100% in all occasions, but works reasonably well on most sites. Just depends on how certain you need to be. Also check the stickies in the forum for other web sites.

    You could also use Crossover to run IE6 which is free today (today only though) :)
