You might like to take a look at an online service called BrowserPhoto:

It does screen captures of the page(s) you nominate on each of the 
different platforms so you see exactly what an end user would.

They support 16 browser versions, including 6 versions/resolutions of IE on 
Win, and 2 versions of IE on Mac. Not sure whether the pricing model would 
suit you, but it may be work a look.

And the disclaimer - I have no affiliation with the company or the service, 
I just came across it recently and filed it away in my interesting/useful 
basket...  :-)
