Hey people, remember what Beta means. In computer law, any thing, that is Alpha, or Beta, is buggy. When it reaches it's final stage, then bad mouth it. The publisher is making an effort here. At least give him some respect.

For those who are really bad mouthing it. I'd like to see you program a better one.

Very nice software!

I think there's no point in complaining about it's bugs at such an early stage. I mean: It's at Version 0.2.2 and is doing it's job already that good! If you look at its website you'll see that the author is well aware of the bugs and is steadily fixing them. So one can only imagine how great it will work, once the higher revisions and versions are coming.

I'm using it on Vista Ultimate and for me there are (despite the known bugs) no differences between its rendering and the rendering of the different Internet Explorers I have on my virtual machines.

And mind you: I'm a web developer and I'm using it in an important project that heavily relies on state-of-the-art CSS and Javascript ( Dojo Toolkit, YAML[the CSS-Framework], Highslide JS, etc). And it gets its job done really well!

Two thumbs up.

On paper, this app looks great, but in practice it's not so good. It may be because I was running IETester in a VirtualBox install of Windows XP within Ubuntu Linux, but once I pick a version of IE to use, it crashes.

If this program would just not crash, it would be incredibly useful for me and many people at my place of work.

A bit harsh there. It's actually very useful to check differences in my site between versions of IE. Though admittedly I purposely try to avoid javascript as much as possible so I won't comment on that.

Only marginally usable. It has many problems, particularly with alpha filters and javascript and it does not incorporate IE developer toolbar.

These are all problems present with other alongside-IE7 IE installations I tried. It appears that IETester groups those installations into a convenient shell, but it does nothing to fix their problems.

It remains to be seen if it will improve on that ground, but until then I'll still have to suffer with VMWare.
