Multiple IEs on the same computer. Why not????

    Why Microsoft does not provide developers a tool where we can test our web
    projects into many different versions of Internet Explorer? It´s a huge pain
    to assure that our websites will render correctly using non-official tools
    for that.
    The new IE8´s "compatibility view" is not enough for that.


    And why Internet Explorer doesn´t automatically update itself like firefox
    does? Why has it to be done under windows update? Normal people don´t like it
    (and fear it). So most of people using windows XP still remains using
    IE6!!!!! C´mon! An almost 10 years old browser!!!!

    And finally, sorry about my english. I´ve tried it hard. :eek:)))

    By the way: Windows 7 rocks! Congratulations!

    Q1: Are you familiar with virtual machines?

    Q2: I've been using Firefox since v1.15, so let me assure you: Firefox
    does not update itself.

    Um, Tools, Options, Advanced, Update tab. I can assure you, FF can
    update itself, or check for updates and install with your approval.
