What about us poor slobs on Windows? Can anyone recommend a good way to set
up, say, XP to be able to run multiple versions of browsers like Geoff can?
(XP is my development box, and I mostly develop for ISP-hosted sites, so I
don't have direct server access.) I think there is virtual box software out
there for Windows, but what about emulating the Mac browsers?
