Recently I discovered an issue with browsing one of my sites on the iPad. Specifically, the radWindow control. So I decided to share how exactly to test on the iPad when you don't have an iPad.
  1. First you'll need to download the Safari Browser. http://www.apple.com/safari/
  2. Install Safari
  3. Open Safari
  4. Use Ctrl+, to open the preferences window
  5. Goto Extensions and disable any Flash extensions
  6. Now go to the Advanced tab
  7. Select checkbox to Enable "Show Develop menu in menu bar"
  8. Close the preferences
  9. In the upper right of Safari, click the icon that looks like a document, it will open a dropdown
  10. Select "Develop" > "User Agent" > "Safari iOS 3.2.2 - iPad"
  11. The page you are visiting will refredh and now you will be emulating an iPad
  12. Now you can use the developer tools for Safari (Much like FireBug) to inspect elements and test your site as if you were using an iPad.
  13. Happy debugging!
