Hi

Ive been lookinf around and free cross browser testing tools arent much cop. Some of the paid ones are cool but way to expensive but the free ones i have seen only let you test one or 3 browsers

Is there a happy medium?

Thanks a lot

I guess it depends on what you want to test about the browser.  My favorite testing tool of all is the W3 validator and it's free but accepts donations.  If you write valid HTML5 documents, you're almost always on firm ground with all of the major browsers.

I just install all the browsers on my computers and use them.  On this XP computer I have IE8, Firefox, Chrome, Safari for Windows, and two versions of Opera plus the Opera mobile emulator.  I also have Safari, Firefox and Chrome on my Mac.

I have all the browsers on two PCs and a Mac.  I don't worry about IE anymore so I don't need to virtualize anything.  I do have a Vista machine with IE9 if I really need to use it.  And I do use the W3C Validator frequently.
