Dev Tool Of The Night: Stand Alone IE 6

Why on Earth would someone get excited about an ancient, non-compliant browser, which has caused untold pain in the development and design world? Because,try as I might, IE 6 isn't going away anytime soon. This leaves one with a dilema - which version of IE should you have installed on your box? Or do you need two boxes? Or some fancy-shmancy virtual server setup?

Now for the exciting part -- thanks to this how to, you don't actually need to choose. Turns out, it's easy - just download IE 6, stand alone version and run it. There's no install process, just unzip and go.

This was a huge help tonight in diagnosing an odd IE 6 bug and should come in handy in many a dev session to come.
