well, for debugging, FF > IE.. take web devolper, firedebug, livehttpheaders, switch proxy, Fiddler2, phpDebugger toolbar and poof..

much better for debugging: php, ajax and .js and DOM / css related stuff in general.

oh and for when i need to see what it looks like in IE, i just 'view in IE tab' laugh

right now, i think you are at the stage where Quai Chang Cain was before he finally snatched the pebbles from the master's hand.. go for it dude !! [Linked Image from sirdude.com]
