I was just fooling about and wondered if there was a limit to how many characters you could enter in the address bar field...

I tried it in MyIE2 and it let me enter 24,155 characters before beeping I was @ the end!!! (I put the whole string in notepad after and of course you know notepad tells you how many characters there are)

I havent tried it in IE6 yet.....


24,155??? -- Wow no one would EVER use that amount of characters!!


EDIT:

IE6 only lets me enter 2048 characters

you're using IE 2? Man, they just don't make em like they used to. the original IE was more better. it was nice and slow, and crashed a lot... gave you a more genuine feeling of rage and frustratoin. you just can't get that realism in the later versions.

I dont think IE2 could display any sites now.... IE6 is the earliest that can I think... (As far as IE browsers go)

Okay I'm fascinated by this. Some people fetishize vintage browsers so much, you can skin your modern browser with an emulator? What browser do you skin with "IE2"?

Assuming it's this: https://www.petefreitag.com/item/17.cfm


It doesn't skin another browser to look like IE, it appears to be its own browser that loads IE's renderer without the IE browser's overhead.
