Does anyone know of any free alternatives to "IE Tab", "ExtensionIE-On-Chrome", etc. These Chrome extensions allow you to run a tab with a virtual version of Internet Explorer in it.

I used to different online dictionaries, that cannot be run simultaneously in the same browser. My solution so far has been to either run each in a different browser (which is annoying), or to run both in Chrome, one normally, and the other in IE Tab. However both of the extensions I mentioned here cost money, and I'd rather not pay for something like this.

Why do you say that IE Tab costs money?

Now home-office work is kind of a gray area, but I would say that you can plausibly claim yourself as a personal user, since you are not publicly using the results of the program.

I know that you don't believe in spyware. I didn't either. However, after reading this article:

http://www.heise.de/ct/ausgabe/2016-24-Add-on-fungiert-als-Datenwanze-fuer-seinen-Hersteller-3459536.html

I've decided to be extremely careful with plugins. Especially with the ones that claim to protect me.

I assumed that it didn't work without paying, mistakenly, because it isn't working in Slimjet (a Chrome clone, of sorts, which I prefer to Chrome). It works fine in vanilla Chrome. I've asked in the Slimjet forums @ http://www.slimjet.com/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1302
