I have two monitors.
I need to do a manual comparison of two sites using IE6 with site A on monitor 1 and site B on monitor 2.

I can't upgrade to later versions or Firefox since those aren't approved.

I have tried shortcuts for the two sites, but when I start site B, it replaces site A in the IE6 window.

What happens if you open IE6 twice, then navigate to the URL in each instance?

Click on link from toolbar for website A.
