standalone versions of IE

Being able to run multiple versions of IE is old news but i’ve never bothered trying until I had a need for it recently. Luckily someone has packaged up a few versions as zip files, so all you need to do is download, unzip and run directly from wherever you downloaded it to – note that there is no need to install – they just run from the included exe, so you don’t need to worry about breaking your installed version. works a treat for me.

Talking of working a treat, I just upgraded Firebird and Thunderbird to version 1.0 (on PC) and they also work a treat (no problem importing settings and mail etc from existing versions – all happened automagically).
