Is there a way to test IE7 functionality (intented to test the functionality of a website) without installing IE7?

If so, how?

Something like an online service?


IF you have IE8 or IE9 installed in your PC:

  • press F12 for the developer window
  • on the Menu, click browser mode and select IE7.

The Currently active browser tab is now in IE7 mode.

you should try MS Virtual Labs,

Technet Virtual Labs : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/virtuallabs

I think that Windows Vista comes with IE7 default, Vista Lab : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/virtuallabs/bb539979
