Haven't even tried.. I'm lucky enough to have IE7 on one box and IE6, 5.5 and 5 on a second one.

Actually, if you have an old PC there, it might a good idea to hook it up with IE6.

It can be your 'old PC visitor with old browser' test dummy. I use one here with no flash installed etc, just to see how sites perform in older systems with older browser versions.

Chris, I just found this:

Microsoft, it seems, has recognized the need for being able to run both versions on the same machine. I have not tried it yet, but I see no reason why it shouldn't work.

Yes, it's a pretty decent browser imho. I find myself using it more than FF when I'm at home.
