Almost every Web designer or Web developer might be tempted to test a functionality embedded in his site in several browsers especially when he notices that some features may only work in certain browsers.

I have always said that there is still reason to test your

site for Internet Explorer even if other browsers are gaining ground like Firefox, Opera and Safari. Professional Web developers have to consider that their users or visitors are free to choose whatever browser they feel like suitable to them.

In this context, IE Tester can help you to test your applications from IE 5.5 to IE 8 Beta.
This app is simple to use, you have just to open a new tab, and select the browser that you'd like to test your page with. In the following section, you will find some limitations of the current version, but the main role of the current version is ensured.

Known problems and limitations for current version v0.2.3:

• When resizing, the content may disappear (a work-around to correct this)
• The Previous/Next buttons are not working properly
• Focus is not working properly
• Java applets are not working
• Flash is not working on IE6 instance.

Last thing to remember is that the number of people using Internet Explorer 5.5 is currently diminishing. However, the number of people still using IE6 is still relatively large.
