Testing on Windows IE/Edge

I'm using a MacBook Pro, so I don't have easy access to a windows machine for testing web applications on Internet Explorer - or so I thought...

Microsoft have made available virtual machine images (for VirtualBox, Parallels, Vagrant, VMWare, HyperV) of Windows 7 through to 10 so you can run IE and Edge easily.

Note that the VMs expire after 90 days, but if you take a snapshot when you first install the VM you can roll it back later and start again.

Perfect!
