Better IE testing

It seems that Microsoft has decided to be a bit nicer about testing old versions of Internet Explorer. I just found out about modern.IE, which is an official Microsoft site with various tools for testing your web pages in IE.

The really nice thing about this is that they now provide virtual machines for multiple platforms. That means that you can now get your IE VM as a VMware image, or a VirtualBox image, or one of a few other options.

When I was using Microsoft's IE testing VMs a couple of years ago, they were only offered in one format - Virtual PC. Sure, if you were running Windows and using Virtual PC, that was great. For everyone else, it was anywhere from a pain in the butt to completely useless. This is a much better arrangement and a welcome change. Nice work, Microsoft!
