Where can I download Internet Explorer 5.5 Service Pack 2 from? Why should I install it anyway?
Although made obsolete by IE 6.0 and now IE 6.0 SP1, Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2 is still a valid option for many users.
Note: Microsoft has stopped supporting Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2. To download IE5.5 SP2 you’ll need to find a different link (with Google for example). I found one for you, but I don’t know how long it will last because it is an outside link that is NOT controlled by me. Try it and if you find that it stopped working please let me know.
See the Download Other IE Versions page for other IE versions.
