Internet Explorer is a browser developed by Microsoft. Windows Internet Explorer (formerly Microsoft Internet Explorer) is based on the Trident render engine.
Internet Explorer Collection contains multiple IE versions, which are standalone so they can be used at the same time. This is useful for web developers. Conditional Comments are important for web developers, because they use them to target specific versions of Internet Explorer. In the standalone versions Conditional Comments work exactly the same as in the native versions. The original version number is shown correcty in the User Agent string.

I already have multiple IE installed for versions up to IE6. I could not get IE 7 standalone to work because of a bug with the form input fields- so I downloaded this one just for IE7-
I didn't install any of the other IE's, but have no doubt that they wouldn't work as well. Make sure you guys check the compatibility chart to see if your version of Windows is compatible with the browser you want to test

Contains a trojan.

Installed on Windows 7, and my experience is:
- It doesn't install IE9 (?).
- The machine already had IE8 installed, so it didn't install that.
- Can't get IE7 on Win7, yeah, ok, I get that.
- So it installed two versions of IE6, neither of which work, they just crash on launch. I tried running them as Administrator, no luck.
So I started out with a machine with IE8. And now I have a machine that still has IE8, but also two broken installs of IE6.
tldr; Don't bother.

Nice idea but in my opinion create a pack with only the last 3 IEs. Thats all any user would really care about.

I only got up to IE6. IE7-9 are non-existent. It claimed to have IE9 installed, but then when I downgraded my IE9 back to 8, because I really needed at least 8, the supposed IE9 for IE Collection turned into IE8 and vice versa when I upgraded back to IE9. I don't have time for this bulls*** and I'm baffled as how this was even recommended to me. This was a complete waste of my time. Thanks for nothing.
I have posted already a review.. I have used this tool in the past on win XP and it is very useful.
But now I have windows 7, and when I try to install this tool, it is not possible to select IE 7 and IE 8 and so not possible to install these two versions!. These are for development the most needed ones and still important.
Why can I not install these two versions on win 7 64 bit? I can install IE1.5, 4, 5, 5.5, but I'm less interested in these versions.
