Do You Still Test in IE7?

Hi there, fellow web developers. I stopped testing for Internet Explorer 6 a while ago, simply because I had enough trouble managing virtual machines to handle testing in IE7, IE8 and IE9.  Now with my primary client fully switched over to IE8, I find myself rarely, if ever, even testing in IE7.  In fact, I removed that VM from my VMWare Virtual Machine Library just yesterday (although I did not delete the VM’s file off my hard drive).

So my question to you all is: do you still test in IE7? Or is it only 8 and above for you guys now?

Thanks for your input!

  1. As far as my personal projects go, they are tested only in the latest versions of each browser. No backward compatibility unless it’s a requirement.

    But when it comes to clients, I’m afraid I have to test even in IE6 sometimes. 🙁

    It was only in the last year that I learned of a time-limited Win7 virtual machine outfitted with IE9. As IE9’s developer mode can shift into IE7’s rendering scheme, the VM plus VIrtualBox enable me to fix IE7-related issues while actually developing in a LAMP stack.
