Tweak Internet Explorer 6 for todays use

I didn’t knew this great Setting for years: As describben in the MSDN, with a simple registry tweak you can disable stylesheets in Internet Explorer 6.

Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
Name: Use StyleSheets
Value-Type: REG_SZ
Possible Values: no or yes

Set it to no and your internet explorer can surf everywhere again:

I’ll call that tweaks mode now. The best thing with this is, that the UI does not provide a button or checkbox any longer to en/disable that setting. My suggestion: Enable it and prevent upgrades to IE7 and IE8 (and IE9 for teh sake to make this list complete). Have fun😀.

And if you wonder how that page looks with stylesheets enabled in IE6, take a look here:
