For Windows User, how to test Safari browser without a Mac

I once had an iMac and gave it away. Now I find out Apple has ceased development of Safari for Windows, so there are no latest versions I can download to test my application with.

I tried to test my app in my iPhone, but the animation is behaving bizarrely, and I'm not sure if a Safari on an iMac would behave the same way.

Are there other Windows platform developers out there like me who need to test their application on a Safari but has no Apple computer? I realize this question borders on the ridiculous since I'm probably going to be told to get an iMac, but I'm posting anyway with the remote hope that someone in the same boat as I has some good ideas.

Thanks.

Yes, you should eventually get a Mac though I prefer the MacBook Pro.  I think the current version is the MacBook Air for lots of dollars.  If it is for testing 'mobile' versions of pages, both Chrome and the newer versions of Opera have pretty good Emulators that cover a variety of devices.  Firefox has a simpler mobile emulator.  Safari is standards compliant enough that the emulators cover it well enough most of the time.

Dave,

When you say Chrome and Opera have pretty good emulators, is that a setting I need to set so it goes into an emulator mode?

I bought an iMac two years ago for MIDI music purposes using Apple Logic Pro. While their sequencer software was amazing in terms of features, I was very disappointed with the bugs I encountered with it. These were not small bugs. Project files were getting corrupted, certain features where the valid range of a values is from 0 to 127 wouldn't go past 114 unless I restarted and created a new project. I was so disenchanted with Apple and used Sonar X3 Producer for the PC instead for my song-making. I gave my Apple iMac to my brother and I doubt I'll ever buy an Apple computer again. Maybe I'll buy an earlier version of iPad.

Developer Tools is Ctrl-Shift-I in both browsers and it appears to be the same emulator.  You have to click on the Show Drawer symbol and go to the Emulator tab and select what you want.
