Test Web Pages in IE with RemoteIE

Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser has seen better days (in terms of usage). That of course doesn't mean that developers - or designers - should ignore the browser when it comes to testing out their website pages. So what can you do? 

Microsoft just released a preview version of RemoteIE, a service based on top of the Azure RemoteApp, which enables Web developers to test Web pages in the latest version of Internet Explorer (IE) found within the Windows 10 technical preview, without needing to install or set up a virtual machine of Microsoft's upcoming OS.

"Going forward, this will be the recommended way for developers who are not running Windows 10 to test the latest IE preview versions," wrote Microsoft program manager, Anton Molleda in a blog post.

Developers interested in checking out the service will need to register on the RemoteIE website and download a client application (Windows, OS X, iOS, or Android). From there, just pressing F12 on a keyboard (or instigating it from IE's menu directly) will provide access to the developer tools found within IE.
