    testing in ALL browsers

    Is there a way of testing your site in an environment that will act like all browser versions?
    So I can load my site into it and click on explorer 5.5 or 4 or any browser option and it will show me what my site will look like in each?

    What are the alternative options if not?

    Try http://www.anybrowser.com/siteviewer.html. It's fun to play with but I don't know how accurate is is. Maybe there's a better option out there?

    My method is using emulation/virtualization software.
    This is my current setup:

    Linuxcare-Mozilla.9x (Virtual PC)
    Win98SE-IE5.0 (VPC)
    MacOS8.1(68k)-Netscape4.7/IE4.0 (Basilisk ][)
    Win98SE-IE5.5 (Host machine)
    Windows2000-IE6.0 (VPC)
    Win95-IE4 (Ancient laptop)

    Basilisk ][ is free but Virtual PC is not, so this probalby isn't ideal unless you have other uses to justify investing in it, as well as enough storage space that can hold all virtual hard drives for other OSes. It's a good method if you don't want multiple browsers on your host OS fighting for superiority. For testing only, it might be overkill.
