Where can i get a good iphone simulator as used in Device-Specific Media Queries - Part 1?

I've seen a few online, but is there one I can use that is separate from my browser, so I can test my local files?

There is an iPhone simulator in Xcode, you do need an Mac to download Xcode though.

Thanks James. Much appreciated.

What would be an option to download for Windows instead? I don't have Mac but going over that video, James do you suggest something? Thank you.

Hope someone finds this helpful. Open Source free tools for CSS, Javascript, Php and many other languages. There are some tools that are built off of the open source code of Eclipse IDE called "aptana. Go to http://aptana.com Also linked on that page, is a company called Appcelerator who makes a similar program called "Titanium" which is more specific to mobile devices. Go to: http://www.appcelerator.com/ You can view pages with popular browser engines, console view, syncs with firebug plugin, interface changes with coding context, called "perspectives". Compile and run applications and more. I've used aptana 2, years ago. I want to try it again now-a-days, that Treehouse have given me confidence and much needed knowledge.
