If you haven’t seen The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard you should definitely put this documentary on your watchlist: YouTube.
Microsoft launched modern.ie a few weeks ago. Among other things they provide virtual machines for VirtualBox to test on IE 8, 9 and 10. Nice! Unfortunatly I was not able to extract the zip files containing these virtual machines on OS X or Linux. But taaddaa there is a solution to this: do not use the build in zip extractors. Something like The Unarchiver does the trick. Happy testing!
