Our ramblings about website design and other things

Internet Explorer Versions

We are not great fans of Internet Explorer, which is the case with the vast majority of the web development community, however we always test with it as there are still many users.

For a recent project we had to try and connect to some old legacy sites that blocked access to later versions of IE, we have some old machines with earlier versions of windows running but this can be time consuming so we found a neat site that changes the User Agent String in your version of explorer so that it appears as an earlier version.

The site has some Registry Files to make the change and includes a file to reset the changes as well – view here if you need to do this, thanks to www.enhanceie.com for the files
