When you *have* to install all the Internet Explorers, do it in a one-liner

08 Feb 2013

You know how it is, you make something awesome for a company, they all use modern browsers, but their customers? Oh, they're still rocking IE6 and 7. I quite honestly thought those days were long behind us.

Well, they may seem like dark dark days, but at least we're not alone - with the advent and growing popularity of github and general open-sourcery I managed to find this GEM of a repository:

Quite simply, if you have Orcale VirtualBox installed you can download and install all the IE's in a command-line onner:

curl -s https://raw.github.com/xdissent/ievms/master/ievms.sh | bash

Isn't it beautiful?
