Cross-browser compatibility test using virtual machines

In my previous post I described cross-browser compatibility testing using online services. This time I will focus on cross-browser testing using virtual machines.
To be sure that your application will work as expected, you will need to test it in every supported browser/operating system (this means different versions of different browsers and different versions of operating systems installed)
To install different versions of browsers on different versions of operating systems you will need many virtual machines.
The disadvantage of having virtual machines locally is that you should have an advanced configuration, where you can run these virtual machines.
