Doug's Mailbag: Testing IE

One reader shares his method for testing multiple IE versions on one machine:

There is a way to run multiple IE browsers on one machine with IECollection software. This software includes IE 1-8 and they all reside on the same physical (or virtual) machine. I've ran into version problems in the past and wanted to have multiple browsers on our tech's machine for support. This software allows us to do just that.

As far as my browser of choice, at work I use FireFox and IE, at home I use Chrome. If I had to pick one it would probably be Chrome but it has its quirks at times.
