    Jon Galloway has a great post today that shows you how to run IE 7 Beta 1 without actually installing it on your system. All you have to do is extract the files in the installer using WinRAR, delete the SHLWAPI.DLL file, and create a new blank text file called IEXPLORE.exe.local in the same folder. This allows you to run IE 7 Beta 1 in "local mode" alongside IE 6 on your XP SP2 setup.

    Very cool tip! :)
