Microsoft Announces RemoteIE, Allows Web Developers To Test The Latest IE On Windows, Mac OS X, iOS And Android

Microsoft Internet Explorer team today announced the preview availability of RemoteIE via Azure RemoteApp. This is a free service from Microsoft that allows web developers to run the latest version of Internet Explorer on the Windows 10 Technical Preview from various devices. It can be Windows, Mac OS X, iOS or Android devices. Even though Microsoft is releasing latest preview builds of IE through their IE developer channel, developers need to install virtual machines with latest IE builds to test their websites.

We know that developers on Windows 7 want a way to test on the latest builds of IE and that the broader development community is eager to have the latest Internet Explorer available on other platforms. To address these needs comprehensively and efficiently, we built RemoteIE on top of the Azure RemoteApp preview as the latest evolution of the IE dev channel – bringing a single, low friction solution to Windows downlevel clients as well as cross-platform. Our goal is to make the latest IE widely available for testing to all Web developers, to help make the Web just work for everyone.

RemoteIE provides access to the latest Internet Explorer on the Technical Preview via Azure RemoteApp. With RemoteIE, you can test the latest preview version of IE from your Windows, Mac, Android or iOS device. Once you’re set up with the RemoteApp client for your platform, you will be streaming IE from the Azure cloud within seconds.

To get started, simply sign up at with your Microsoft account and follow the directions to download the Azure RemoteApp client for your platform.
