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.

IE Tab Nov 22, 2016

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
