Hi, I hope this is in the right forum, bit I believ it is as it deals with the accesibility of my web content.
Does anyone know how to dynamically, not just on page load screenshot, test a webpage in Internet explored on Mac os x?
I mean without accessing my windows partition— so on the msc os x Operating System.
I heard once of some software called ieforOsx or ieformac and I searched for it on Google and found that the project evolved into a wine like collection that allows many more windows apps to run in osx, but I can not get that to work at all
can anyone please help me learn how to properly use the wine for Mac OS X if they have been successful with it or figure out how to use IE on my mac?
Thanks in Advance & Regards,

You can install VirtualBox on your Mac for free and then run Windows programs without leaving OSX. It's excellent.
A similar program (not free) is [VMWare Fusion, which I find is excellent too. A similar commercial option is [URL="http://www.parallels.com/au/products/desktop/"]Parallels](http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/).

I have parallels, but it has been giving me problems— too many problems.
I'll try virtual box. Can I install windows 7 in virtual box?

Yep. It'll take any version of windows, as far as I'm aware.

Here are the screenshots of Virtual Box running Windows Vista on a Mac.

The virtualBox solution worked and I really appreciate all of your help:)
I posted or started a new thread because I was having some extended issues regarding the installation files for previous versions of IE & having/ running multiple versions simotaneously.
