Multiple IEs on your PC

multiple_ie.pngIt was frustrating to find out that the newly uploaded Engsol website doesn’t display as expected in IE6. Screw Microsoft, all this work for hours and back to drawing board because of IE6 rendering dilemma. Lets cool it and tackle this. As I have recently upgraded to IE7 (which apparently shows the page as desinged) on my computer. So I have been Googling for hours to find a way to run both IE6 and IE7 on my PC simultaneously for testing purposes. Guess what, I stumbled upon the multiple standalone installer by Yousif Al Saif of tredosoft.com with IE3 thru IE6. This is by far the easiest and fasted way to setup multiple IEs out of more than 50 odd websites on this subject. This comes with all the needed title markers and registry fixes, in a single easy installer package. It even comes with special files to keep PNG scripts working in IE6 for proper testing. Wow. So if you are in the same boat as me then install IE7 from MS first, then go here for more instructions. All thanks goes to Yousif, a time saver!
