A Web browser is one of these applications that we can’t live without. We use it multiple times a day as one of the most basic tools. Applications like Chrome or Firefox are great, but they are all nearly identical in terms of UI, functionality, and overall user experience. For some of us they might be too modern. So how about going back to the days when everything was simple and there was only one king of browsers: Internet Explorer 6?

If you never heard of IE6, you must either be really young or you must have been living under a rock for the last ten years or so. Internet Explorer 6 was included with Microsoft Windows XP, which is unfortunately still one of the most widely used OSes. If you ever wanted to try something reminiscent of this old school browser on your device, XDA Senior Member Vlad Mihalachi has made it possible. Old but Gold Internet Browser is nothing less than a simulation of the legendary IE6 to Android. It uses Bing as a default search engine, doesn’t have any fancy functions, and offers the pure experience from the first decade of 21st century.

Bring back the Windows XP days with Old but Gold Internet Browser. Head over to the Old but Gold Internet Browser thread to get started.
