Multiple Versions of IE on same machine

At Acumentum we always test our designs on multiple browsers. As we all know, one of the great pains in our business is getting a design to look, as it should, across a variety of browsers.

Internet Explorer 6 is still the most common browser on the web, yet in our office most people are running Firefox 2.0 and IE7. This makes quick testing, as you go, a pain, as IE5, IE5.5, IE6 and IE7 cannot co-exist on the same machine…or at least that used to be the case.

One of the enterprising lads in the office found that some clever people at Tredosoft have created an installer (10.3 MB) that allows you to have all versions of IE available on the same machine.

This is one of the most useful tools I’ve seen this year.

    Hey Sunil,

    I’m afraid it’s been a while since I’ve used this tool. So, I don’t think I can be of much help, may I suggest you investigate through the vendor website.
