Get Multiple Internet Explorer Versions on your PC

In this way none of the previous versions can coexist. This is useful for daily users who just utilize IE for net surfing. However, the web developers might find the need to have multiple versions to carry out a few testing or to update some features.
Getting Multiple IE versions in the same PC is very simple, owing to the Multiple IE solutions.

All these versions are available in one package and after installing this, all the versions of IE will be installed in your computer simultaneously.
