    I have found sites that will give me screen shots but is there any thing that will mimic my site so I can click around?

    From the screenshots my site front page is out of wack but I want to see if there are more issues

    I use VirtualBox and have a basic WinXP install to do real IE testing.

    It's always best to do the testing in the actual environment you need to test for...like I have a macbook that I do safari/mac testing with, XP desktop to do firefox, chrome, IE, opera, safari testing with, Linux Redhat that I do Konqueror and Lynx testing with, etc. Yes, it does become expensive to be a successful web developer...it's all in a days work being a web developer (comes with the territory).

    I have had success with WineBottler+Wine combo, IETester, and MSIE7 (via Winetricks, which comes with Wine). MSIE8 installs, but is VERY buggy and not really usable under Wine.

    I just installed Windows 7 via Boot Camp and then installed IETester.
