Want to use Internet Explorer 7 without removing IE 6?

For those of you that are web developers, it’s always nice to have a clue as to what the new technology will do to your carefully crafted style sheets and the use of divs in your pages — how will the web browser render them you ask? Well, if you’re wanting to find out how Internet Explorer 7 will mangle, errr, modify the way that your pages look with the new and improved *cough* HTML rendering engine, you can install the beta 2 release available from Microsoft. However, if you do so you’re going to lose access to Internet Explorer 6 (if you’re running Windows XP) which to me seems pretty sleazy that they would make it replace your browser.
Anyway, it would appear that the folks at Google Operating System have figured out a way to install IE 7 beta 2 in its own separate directory so that it doesn’t eat IE 6. For more information on this clever installation so that you can render pages and see what happens, check out this site here.
