Crossbrowser testing tools

Hellow all,

I am a developer and working on a Macintosh. I have VMWare Fusion to boot windows. This is what I use to check if a site is running on IE and other windows browsers.

Now I came across this service: http://crossbrowsertesting.com/

This looks great and thinking of purchasing an account.

But I have allways wondered what other developers are using? What kind of tools (online/offline) do you use to test your websites on multiple platforms and browser versions? Remember, I am a Macintosh user.

Greetz,
walter

There's also Adobe Browser lab.  I just have lots of machines including a dozen PCs, an old Mac, and a couple of Ubuntu Linux machines.  I've gotten a bunch at the Goodwill store and my customers have given me several.  I have all the current browsers on my main machines and I have older browsers on older machines if I need to check them.

http://www.browsercam.com/ is the one I used when I owned a design and development firm.
