Tips: Making IE7 put on an IE6 mask

If you are like me and using IE7 then you have probably ran into more than a handful of sites that don't recognize your browser. In some cases this doesn't cause any problems, though in others it can be quite problematic. Sometimes you just wish your browser would just act like IE6. Well now it can. In case you weren't aware we have a nice little gem of a nifty utility called the User Agent String Utility. Once you install it the utility it will allow you to launch an instance of IE7 that reports itself in it's headers as IE6, Relief at last!

    I regret downloading IE 7. It crashes almost every time I close the IE 7 window.

    I always send error reports. What’s going on?

    I’m running XP Pro, MCE, and Outlook 2003.
