    Testing for IE6 Compatibility?

    Hi, last time I had To test for IE6 Compatibility I used the Internet Explorer 6 Virtual PC image. But that image is expired now and there doesn't seem to be a new version...

    How can I test if my site works correctly in IE6 nowadays?

    Are you using Vista or XP? If you're on XP, you can use a program such as Multiple IE which lets you run all versions simultaneously.

    If you are a PC user can use Multiple IE which allows you to have versions of IE3 to IE6 installed as well as having IE7. I don't think it works with Vista though.

    Yes, and they will release another one. It's not an issue.
