    Hiya,

    Can I install different browsers (IE, mozilla, opera, NN) on my computer and work with them at the same time?
    (I have win2000pro)

    certainly can,
    like justame says, may be a prob with versions of ie, this seems to ring a bell for me, mind you from versions 4+ there arent many issues with ie. I currently have, ie6, nn4.5, nn6, nn7, opera, mozilla on my win98. (mind u, most of these are for pesky dhtml testing )

    u can get pretty much all old browsers at http://browsers.evolt.org/

    Sure you can, but...

    Sure you can, but you may have troubles with IE 6.0, NS 6.0 and Mozilla if you'll install them on Win2000Pro.

    After installation Win2000 Service Pack 3 should work without any troubles.

    Sorry if I state the obvious but you can't have more than one version of IE Windows installed under the same OS. The newer version will eat the older.

    Other browsers - no probs.

    I got phoenix and msie on mine, just be careful when you install what you select as 'defaults' because the defaults control which browser owns the comp (or when the comp must default) but you can load either one by double-click.
    really all you need is MsIe and any Mozilla browser such as netscape, phoenix, or mozilla itself it's all the same. cauz MSie and Netscape covers 99% of the Web.

    Only problem is that IE4Win is not the same as IE5Win is not the same as IE5.5Win is not the same as IE6Win is not the same as IE5Mac.

    The man asked if you could use more than one browser on the same comp. That is what this is about, nothing more.
