Microsoft Announces RemoteIE

Microsoft Announces RemoteIEAnd it’s pretty useless.

Recently, Microsoft has announced a new and free tool that aims to help web developers to test their code on Internet Explorer, especially those running Mac OS X, iOS or Android.

While it might sound cool on the first sight, there is one problem: it allows you to test the latest version of Internet Explorer on the Windows 10 Technical Preview, which means that pretty much no one is using this browser right now and it’s useless since developers need access to older builds like IE8 and IE9.

If you are still interested in giving it a go, head over to the official page for all the details. In the meantime, let’s hope that it’s just a start and useful browser versions will be added in the near future.

    Can’t you use the F12 tools and emulate the older browsers? Seems to work for mean and is 99% accurate (apart from legacy plugin issues and some security related features).
