Running Old Internet Explorer Browsers Alongside IE7

Two versions of IE side by sideThere are at least a half a dozen ideas out there for running differnet versions of Internet Explorer alongside of eachother – typically focused on running IE6 and IE7 simultaneously now that Internet Explorer has been released and is gaining market share very quickly.

Thus far I’ve found the best, and by far the easiest, way is to simply download this ZIP file (10Mb).

Unzip the file and you’re left with three folders and three shortcut icons, which allow you to launch Internet Explorer 5.01, Internet Explorer 5.5 or Internet Explorer 6, all right alongside IE7 (you should first install IE7 before doing any of this.)

Ms. Yummy Wakame shared this with me awhile ago, but it seems to be a well kept secret.
