So… the story begins with my Apple Macbook screen starting to go faulty. I have been using my Macbook a lot lately, at work and home probably about 12-14 hours a day, so the screen has started to go, but I’ll leave that for a later post. It is for this reason I have decided to move back to my PC at work, but have been looking for an alternative in software that I love on the Mac. For most of my coding jobs I use Textmate. Its a nice simple editor on the surface, but the way it formats and lays out the code, it helps me with debugging etc. But as I was searching for possible options I came across IETester which relates to my earlier post about Multiple IE’s.
IETester is a better option in my opinion, its all neatly contained in one application and uses a tab system, like most standard browsers these days. Here is a video demonstrating it being used, its a very useful tool and I will be using more and more.
If you’re finding your sites are doing strange things in IE versions as far back as 5.5 then you may find this extremely useful. There are a couple of bugs with the software which are detailed at the bottom of their homepage.
