Run Multiple Version Of Internet Explorer

Ok, I know what you are thinking after reading the title of this post. Why would I want to run a version of Internet Explorer, let alone many versions? The answer is simple: cross browser compatibility.

If you are developing a website the cold ugly truth is that you are probably going to have to support Internet Explorer 5 & 6 at least in some fashion. To do this you need to be able to test your site in 5, 6 & 7. The problem is that by default you can't do that.

I found the following link this weekend that allows you to have IE7 installed on your host OS and then run IE 3, 4, 5 & 6 separate on the same machine! Awesome resource for developers.
