I would like to be able to split my preferred browsers in Windows XP so that IE opens some sites (external), and Firefox opens all others (internal).

Is there a way to do this in Windows XP?

Define "external" and "internal". – Hello71 Jun 4 '10 at 22:05

You can use Firefox as your main browser and install the IE Tab Plus add-on (formerly Coral IE Tab).

This add-on allows you to define URLs for which IE will be used, you will then get a new tab which uses IE for rendering the page.

Works fine for things like or the Outlook Web Interface.
