Internet Explorer has a much slower release cycle than the other major browsers, so there
isn't a regular snapshot available. Check for information
on any beta versions or release candidates available.
Opera: Beta and alpha versions are called Opera Next; get them here: ht-
tp:// Whether a particular Opera Next release is a beta or
an alpha depends on how close to the next release they're getting; closer to release and
they'll be betas.
Safari: There are no beta releases of Safari as such, but you can download a nightly ver-
sion of the WebKit rendering engine that powers Safari and use it within your existing Sa-
fari install:
