Question: Why are many companies still working with Internet Explorer, when newer browser versions are available for Windows? Answer: Because of applications and services that have been designed to work in Internet Explorer 6. Most of these applications are Intranet apps, and since they work, companies do not feel the need to pay to make them compatible with Internet Explorer 8.

UniBrows may be a solution for those companies, considering that newer versions of Internet Explorer offer improved web compatibilities and security as well as faster speeds.

The browser plugin works similar to IETab add-ons that are available for Firefox and Google Chrome, with the difference that it adds Internet Explorer 6 compatibility to Internet Explorer 8.

UniBrows can be configured with rules. It is for instance possible to configure urls to open as if they were opened in Internet Explorer 6. That's great for companies who do not want to update their applications or operating systems because of compatibility issues.
