In the past few years, Microsoft is making the testing on Internet Explorer a little easier by offering developers with the virtual machines, tools and offers available on modern.IE. Based on developers feedback, yesterday they announced few more additions to their offering.
- Microsoft has made available the VirtualBox versions of modern.IE’s test VM’s for Vagrant users in beta form so that they can automatically download and layout those images for development and testing purposes. This helps developers using Vagrant to automate the setup and configuration of their development environments to ensure consistency and repeatability standing up their project machines.
- Microsoft has partnered with Parallels to make the modern.IE VMs accessible from within their new VM wizard directly. Developers need not separately download the VM archive pieces to put them together. This handy access path provides the EULA and choice of IE/Windows versions directly in the product.
- As a special offer to modern.IE users, Kraken.io have made a 10% discount available via modern.IE on new monthly and yearly plans for the life of that subscription.
