Three former Microsoft IE execs worked on the Microsoft Internet Explorer team have launched a company, Browsium, on March 15, that is tackling the IE 6 migration problem faced by many businesses.

Their first product, known as "UniBrows" enable "legacy IE 6-based Web applications to run on Windows 7 and IE 8 on Windows XP without modifying a single line of code."

"UniBrows delivers complete IE6 functionality and behaviors by using the original, native IE6 rendering, JavaScript, ActiveX and security design," company officials said in today's press release. Administrators can create the rules and profiles for specifying which web apps should use the IE6 browser engine and legacy ActiveX components and which can use the IE 8 ones.

Browsium is touting UniBrows as a way for organizations to free up their Windows 7 upgrade path. The product makes use of an IE 8 add-on that enables IE 6 web applications to run in an IE 8 tab, enabling enterprises to upgrade PCs to Windows 7 while keeping their legacy IE 6 applications running unmodified, according to the company.
