One of the toughest things about developing a website on a Mac is cross browser testing. Luckily, a company called Xenocode has released an interesting browser based solution that works better than any other method I have seen.
With Xenocode’s Browser Plugin you can load:
- Internet Explorer 8
- Internet Explorer 7
- Internet Explorer 6
- Firefox 3
- Firefox 2
- Google Chrome
It requires the installation of a *.exe file, which in my opinion is a little unsettling. Since I’m using VMware to run a copy of Windows XP on my Mac I’m not too worried; I barely use Windows.
So far I have had no problems, and I absolutely love the convenience of it.
