MOZiE Compares Gecko and Internet Explorer Page Renderings

Version 0.7 adds synchronized scrolling to its list of features, which include synchronized Web surfing, document validation, screen emulation, style toggling, inline browsing, browser launching and bookmarking."
even the possibility to test in IE 5, 5.5 if you ahve IE6 ... Another thing is that is really impressive that there is now very few difference between the rendering of IE and Mozilla ... The problems of Netscape 4.7 are really far
One thing I do for NS 4.x, I add /*/*/ at the top of my css and under each comment. Netscape 4.x ignores all css between that mark and the next comment. So since I design my sites with out tables, NS 4.x folks get a plain html document with a short note at the top letting them know this sites uses newer standards and they might want to consider upgrading but that all the info is still usable and reachable anyhow. It seems like a nice solution to me. :)
... seems to me that the same thing can be accomplished much easier with the "View in IE" extension.
