I never realized what a dog IE6 was (and evidently 7% of my visitors still use it). Anyway, who is using what for cross browser testing. I have used Adobe's browser lab (and am not convinced it is accurate). I've also experienced similar difficulties with Browser Shots. I have an old machine with some version of IE6 and it shows yet a different page format.
Who's using something that is convenient and trustworthy?
Dude111, is my sarcaso-meter broken today or are you serious? If you are, curious as to why.
I still have an old machine with '6 on it for testing. One of the things i **did** like about it, but is a horrible security flaw, is that it allowed you to read the input type="file" via JS which allowed you to write a preview of an image upload.
For IE6 (and all other incarnations of IE) I keep a dedicated cleanly installed copy of XP in a virtual machine on my mac. So I do test with the real thing, no plugins or anything but patches from MSFT.
I consider IE in general and especially IE6 a major PITA, and cannot wait for it to finally die out.
