Hello....I use a Mac for DW 5.5 (new user) and in the 'File - Preview in browser' option it only has Safari and Firefox. I do not have Parallels, etc installed to emulate a Windows environment. Is there any way to install an app purely to use within DW for Internet Explorer and Opera?
Thanks

Nope, no integration.
I think you have three options.
1. Adobe BrowserLab
2. Get a PC for testing
3. Use some virtual software to run Windows on your mac

I personally use VMware Fusion and I'm very pleased with it. I have 4 virtual machines set up:

XP with IE6 (looking forward to deleting this one soon)
XP with IE7
XP with IE8
Windows 7 with IE9

I also have various versions of Firefox, Chrome and Safari installed on those VMs.

I tend to use them for serious debugging and use BrowserLab for quick checks.

It the cost of being serious about building websites.
