    Yeah, I did mean Internet Explorer. The link you posted is for the service pack tho. It seems MS don't want people getting hold of IE6 anymore; or at least not easily.

    Internet Explorer 6 SP1, the latest version of Internet Explorer for users not running Windows XP, provides a flexible and reliable browsing experience with enhanced Web privacy features for all Windows users. This version includes a full installation of the Web browser and the most recent version of Outlook Express, the e-mail client that is included with Internet Explorer.
    I think it includes the full download.

    Why do you want MSIE6? For testing clientside code?

    Just finding and downloading IE 6 may not solve your problem if you have a later version installed. The process of running two concurrent IE versions under Windows, starting (if memory serves me right) with Windows 2000 is not an easy one.

    But there's an easy way. The link below is what I use. It allows you to run several versions together, it ships with IE versions 3.0(!) to 6.0 and it's... free. Do read the instructions though.

    EDIT: Meanwhile, if by any chance you need this IE version to test your work and can't make Multiple_IE to work (if you are under Vista, for instance), check http://browsershots.org/ for an interesting free service in which you get a snapshot of your work in a wide range of browsers and operating systems. It's became quite popular and it is no longer the great service it used to be. But I still use it for testing under the horrid Safari in MacOS.

    Not as far as I can tell

    Yeah, for javascript and css layouts.

    Thanks, I'll check it out.

    horrid? what are you talking about? In all of my testing Safari complies a lot more with the standards than IE does.

    Well, I don't know about Mac, but I have Safari in Windows. And what I don't like about it is that it seems to think I like the Mac theme and font smoothing that much that I shouldn't be able to turn it off (just like Live Messenger thinks I'm so fond of ther 1337 Vista design).

    I should have followed up on that. Here's the two reasons I don't like Safari...

    1 - Renders its own version of controls that aren't standards compliant. Dropdown boxes css width, for instance, doesn't include the down arrow. The controls are too stylized also. I cannot seem to be able, for instance to remove the 3D look.

    2 - Macintosh and Windows engine versions seem like they are two different engines. When working with positioning I cannot have them to agree.

    Meanwhile, we agree on IE lack of support.

    I don't like the font smoothing either, but that has nothing to do with standards compliance. IE6 is an abomination in that area. My sites have generally worked fine in all browsers until I test it in IE6, and then half the problems turn out to be bugs in the browser. Life would be so much simpler if Microsoft never made IE.
