I use crossover for mac to test out my sites against the dreaded IE. I am having and issue with crossover picking up flash - so i am having an issue with my flash sniffer... Besides using bootcamp - are there any other good ways to test out against ie... My logs show a great deal of my clients are using IE7. How is IE7 checking out from a CSS point of view. If i am 100 percent compliant will IE still mash my site???

thanks

Check out this article regarding IE7 compatibility - not sure if this is what you're after:

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

i will check it out and also take it with a grain of salt... Not sure if i trust the evil empire...

msdn = microsoft propaganda

from what i have read they have made strides with 7... still bugs, but all browsers have bugs i guess...

any other frustrated webmasters who develop on mac and cringe when they perform there "IE hacks" process of design....

If you have Firefox you can use this to test in IE:

Doesn't that use the IE engine for the tab? It says that it doesn't work with OS X?

We'll I've run it in Firefox on Windows and presumed that it would work on Tiger... but then again I should have remembered that IE isnt on Tiger.

I really need to wake up.....
