Easy solution to test sites on IE6

As you may be aware, the vast majority of government departments are still using Internet Explorer 6 (IE6), which is very dated, and there are no plans to upgrade till at least 2011. As a result, the majority of sites we build for government have to be fully IE6 compatible. Since no one with any technical knowledge will have IE6 on their computer this can be a bit of a pain when it comes to testing, especially as Microsoft don’t let you run two versions of IE. However, I’ve managed to find a bit of very good freeware which allows you to install IE6 without having to replace any of your browsers.

    My understanding is that this doesn’t work on Windows 7. There is also a scheme called “IE Collection” that is also good, however that also doesn’t seem to work on Windows 7.
