US firm Browsium has updated its flagship UniBrows browser compatibility product to allow enterprises to run mission critical line of business applications designed for Internet Explorer 6 in the newly released IE9.
UniBrows 1.0.2 also offers a variety of compatibility and performance improvements, according to the firm.
Browsium, which was founded by former Microsoft executives and developers, released the first version of UniBrows earlier this month with the aim of helping firms that want to migrate to newer Microsoft platforms but are held back because of their line of business apps
"Thus businesses find themselves trapped in a Catch-22: either suffer breakage of their IE6 line of business apps, or employ unacceptably expensive and complex alternatives," said the firm. "These are painful choices."
UniBrows is a lightweight browser add-on which requires no costly investment in new infrastructure or servers to deploy, according to the firm.
"UniBrows provides an immediate solution, allowing organisations to modernise their operating systems and browsers now, while they update legacy web applications over time on their own schedules," said Browsium chief executive Matt Heller.
New customers can download the free UniBrows 60-day Evaluation Kit from www.browsium.com.
