    IE7 - co exist with IE8?

    Apologies as I haven't done a search on this.

    I am on XP Pro SP3 and hope to stay with it a good while yet. I run IE7, Opera, FF, Chrome and Safari for Win - needing to test web work before uploading 'in house'. I do however want to possibly "enjoy" the IE8 enhancements but am leery of upgrading in case my IE7 becomes lost.

    I use "Multiple IEs" if I want to test back further.

    Is it possible put IE8 on without having to forgo IE7? This would be much sought after.

    Thanks - pretty much what I had thought but always wondering if there is any workaround - it's better to have everything on the table when testing needed. Will have to resort to using browsershots.org.

    Firefox 4 beta 9 can be installed without removing current version.
