Does anyone know the best way to test greensock GSAP animations in IE 8,9, and 10 ?


I have a virtual machine running on a MAC, but it doesn't seem to yield real results, along with screen-shot software, which makes it almost impossible to test how the animations actually run in IE versions... Does anyone know if the best way to test that ?

What do you mean by the virtual machine doesn't "yield real results"? Microsoft even provides VMs for this very purpose modern.ie/virtualization-tools


There's really no better way to test than by installing Windows or using VMs...

Hello celli


IE8 is no longer supported by Microsoft! .. And it is not even supported by major companies and websites like Google.


If you are just going to test with a standalone version of IE on Windows like Jamie advised..  then here is a link to Microsoft's IE download area, if you need to downland previous versions of IE.



  1. Just go to the above link.
  2. And then scroll down to Popular downloads..
  3. Choose the IE version you need to test listed as 1 through 5
  4. Then just follow their wizard to download

To test older versions of IE you will need to uninstall whatever version of IE you have on your computer.


Microsoft has to have you go through fiery hoops to get previous versions of IE .. so I hope this helps!

yes, very helpful. These are very good links, I will use them. I have IE8 on a VM, but results seem look different from what I've seen on some screenshot testing platforms.


I will try IE9 on the VM from these links.


I didn't know IE8 was no longer supported by Microsoft!

I thought that was a year away, WooHoo!
