I’d been meaning to post about this for a while but I never got around to it.
One random, lonely, boring day (really every day) I started digging through some files and happened upon something like this in IE’s Program Files folder:
“No,” I thought, “surely not.” Surely so, it turns out. That’s not just an old IE icon, that’s the old Internet Explorer. No I don’t know how I ended up with duplicates.
I check the “About” box and get this:
Hmm..”Side-by-Side Mode” you say? You kid, you kid.
Oh you were serious weren’t you?
I thought it was pretty cool that there’s still a workaround method. I guarantee this is stupid old news, but hey I found it myself 😀
I’d imagine this would only work if you had IE6 installed and then upgraded to 7. I’m not sure how IE8 handles it yet because I’ve not installed it for XP (I got the shared computer bluuuuuues yeah)
Heck I didn’t know they even produced IE8 for XP until a little while ago.
