Hi there,

I am looking for a tool that will permit me to check the layout on applemac, and it would be great to find a tool that permits me to test signup / contact forms on a apple mac platform.

I have used microsofts virtual pc to have all the microsoft platforms / browser combinations but dont have readily available access to a Mac

any thoughts are most welcome

Apple does not permit virtualization of their OS on other hardware platforms. That is, the only really legit way to run Mac browsers is to buy a Mac.

Barring that, you can download Safari for Windows. It's not a complete test but will catch many of the browser compatibility issues you may encounter.

There are sites out there that allow you to view your websites in a wide array of browsers, but I'm not sure how good they are for testing forms, etc.

I would not recommend any of the hacks out there for installing Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware.
