We have several web based services each with it's own strict, conflicting browser requirements. What would be the best way to handle this?

I was thinking maybe ThinApp or RemoteApp.

Users will need to launch different versions of browsers from single machines.

Thanks.

Either use Chrome with ietab or use lunascape which uses all 3 rendering engines trident (ie), webkit (chrome), gekko (Firefox).

Neither of those worked for me. The page still didn't render properly. I need IE8 to run them. I tried ThinApp but am still having issues with it.

Chrome with IETab runs IE 7/8/9 rendering engines so the compatibility should be there.  This has solved the various problems we encountered with our financial applications that require earlier versions of IE.  IE 10 in compatibility mode only runs IE9.  I didn't think about it before but lunascape only runs the version of the trident rendering engine that is already resident on the machine.

Can you give us a link to try?

I can't. It's private healthcare information.
