Internet Explorer Testing FAQ

Is this a real Internet Explorer or is it an emulator?

This is a real Internet Explorer. We run IE on actual Windows computers and stream the desktop to you. You can use Internet Explorer as an online browser from your own browser. We invented smart algorithms that do it.

Do you have IE developer tools installed?

Yes, you can access Internet Explorer developer tools by pressing F12.

What's the most common bug in Internet Explorer 8?

The most common bug in older IEs is forgetting the trailing comma:

var data = {
  "one" : 5,
  "two" : 10,  // <- trailing comma here, delete it!

Do you also offer testing in the new Edge browser?

Yes, you can test in the new Edge browser if you select the Windows 10 operating system.

Can you help us debug our old IE app?

Sure! Shoot us an email at and we'll solve it for you. We have the expertise and infrastructure to quickly debug and solve all Internet Explorer compatibility issues. We have been doing this for over 10 years!

Can I run modern webapps in old IEs?

Glad you asked. We developed a technology called Live API that lets you run modern browsers in Internet Explorer 8+. Here's how it works – we embed a modern Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Opera inside IE. It doesn't require any additional installations. It all just works through JavaScript!
