IE and Mozilla side by side

Scope is a multi-tabbed browser which displays web pages using either the IE or Mozilla engine - or both if you want to compare pages side by side. In addition to being extremely fast, Scope is very, very lightweight - only about 250k for the whole program!

Kind of annoying to use as a default browser, but it could be a very handy testing tool to compare IE and Mozilla side by side.

Seems like a great idea. However, I can't find the download link. Am I missing something? Is Scope 2.0 (July 25 2001) the latest version?

Yeah, I had trouble finding the link as well. [link to download] Scope 2.0 looks like the last build of it and it's the one I tried.

I also had to do the regsvr32 mozctlx.dll trick to get it to render pages in Mozilla.

Another piece of software that can use both Gecko and IE is html-kit, a nice litte HTML editor.

Following the trend. Topstyle, an CSS and recently also an (X)HTML editor is capable of using Gecko and IE as well.

Nice to see TopStyle mentioned here! I do want to add, though, that TopStyle didn't follow a trend - it has supported Gecko as an embedded browser since 1999. The latest version also supports a full screen, side-by-side preview using both IE and Gecko.

Do a Google for the Networker browser version 2.60.
It will also use either or both engines and passed Scope way back down the road.....
