I just realized I cannot install IE9 directly, as I have Windows XP. Is there some other way to debug webpages for IE9 on Windows XP?

  • I know there is IE Netrenderer, but it is just static renderer, I need to check dynamic functionality also, and I need to log in, which is not possible in Netrenderer.
  • I know there is IE Tab Plus Add-on for Firefox, but this probably works only if you have IE9 already installed??

Thanks for your help!

I'd say your best bet is to install Windows 7 or Vista in a virtual machine and test IE9 there.

You can get a 90-day evaluation version of Windows 7 Enterprise here:

And you can choose from a number of virtualisation products, like Virtual PC, VMWare or VirtualBox.
