Stand-alone IE6 from for testing

There was discussion during a meeting today of the difficulties in  
testing IE6 and IE7 on the same machine. has a library of  
old browser versions, including a version of IE6 that can be run  
without being installed, so it can run side-by-side with an install  
of IE7.

I've had very good luck using it for HTML, Javascript, and CSS testing.

There is one problem with this set up. This version of IE6 reports  
that the user agent is IE7, so if you have CSS or Javascript which  
branches on the user agent, you will see the wrong behavior.
