Behold, Multiple IEs Together in Harmony

One for the web people, this guy has made the impossible possible. He has found a way to have IE5.01, 5.5 and 6 installed together under Windows XP, 2000, Server 2003, 98 and ME. (awe inspired gasp and eyes filled with hope…)

For those who aren’t aware, you can’t run different versions of Internet Explorer — on Windows. This causes incredible arse pains when web designers and developers need to test their work to make sure it’ll work in as many configurations as they’ve promised.

No more going onto this machine and then that one, and asking someone else how sites look and work, and bribing them, or just crossing fingers and offering virgin scarifices to the browser gods — please, please work, I beg you!

But I digress. I myself have not had the chance to try this out, but all the feed back on the site is incredibly positive.

    Adobe Not Releasing Universal Binaries Of Current Software

    Adobe have posted this question and answer PDF regarding Adobe products running on the new Intel-Based Macs. Looks like the Photoshop TV guys were right, a Universal Binary will not be available for CS2, Adobe will instead focus on making CS3 compatible with both Intel-Based Macs and the current Macs. CS3 could be available in the next 18 - 24 months if you look at Adobe's rack record for major releases.

    The Dreadful Embarrassment, Now In Purple!

    Like most creatives who prefer working on Apples, I've been hanging out for some sort of concrete evidnece that the Adobe CS2 suite will run well/much better on the new Intel-based Macs under the Rosetta emulator, or that Adobe will release a Universal Binary update. Well I need a new mac within the next week, and decided to just go ahead and place an order for a 17-inch PowerBook any ways. I've also managed to find a two-tone purple laptop bag over at the Crumpler site named, The Dreadful Embarrassment.

    It does work. I keep a copy of IE 5.0 on the laptop, so I can test sites there, but it is far handier to have three versions on one box. Try hitting Listamatic to test your installs out
