Internet Explorer 6
|Version of Internet Explorer|
Internet Explorer 6 was introduced alongside Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 and was the longest running version of Internet Explorer until IE 7's release nearly six years later. IE 6 lacks many common features such as support for transparent PNG images. This version is the last version compatible with Windows NT 4.0 (albeit requiring SP6a), Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows Me, although it can also be unofficially installed on Windows 95, though the address bar will be missing. This is the first IA-64 and x64 version of Internet Explorer.
Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]
- On Windows NT 4.0, System Properties reports "IE 5 6.0.2800.1106" (in this case for IE 6 SP1). This field is normally used to report the version of an installed copy of Microsoft Plus! if installed. This can be fixed by editing the appropriate entry in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion "Plus! VersionNumber" = "IE 6.0.2800.1106"
