MultiBrowser uses Standalone Browsers to enable you to test websites with different browsers locally on a single machine.
Standalone Browsers are virtualized web browsers that run from a single binary file without the need for installation. These browsers intelligently manage resources between their hosts and themelves, which allows you, for instance, to run multiple versions of IE concurrently on a single machine.
To use these Standalone Browsers, you first have to download them with the MultiBrowser Browser Downloader.
Select the browsers you would like to install and click "Start" to install your desired Standalone Browsers on your machine.
Note that the program hides older, "legacy browsers" by default, but you can check the "Show Legacy Browsers" options to view them.
Afterwards when the download is complete, launch the Standalone Browsers by either clicking their respective options in the Start Menu, or use the MultiBrowser Browser Launcher.
Please note that the first time a browser is launched it will be a little slower as it first has to extract its files andcreate a temporary storage location,
Also, be mindful of launching a large number of standalone browsers as it will require a lot of machine processing.
The MultiBrowser Browser Launcher provides a convenient means to launch one or more browsers in one go - just select the browsers you would like to launch, enter the desired start URL, and click the "Open Browsers" button.
Outside of launching Standalone Browsers, it is also possible to launch "local browsers", or browsers that are installed locally on your machine.
The MultiBrowser Browser Launcher also provides options to clear the Standalone Browser temporary files (File > Clear Temp Files) and if needed, configure proxy settings (File > Proxy Settings).
