✔ Best Answer
You can use Windows snap feature to put one program on one side of the screen and a different program occupying the other.

This YouTube clip explains it;

You just have to remember to click in the window that you wish to work with.

Edit: Some programs that have custom window behaviours don't do snap but in the case of Internet Explorer and Microsoft Office, they should play happily together.

Windows snap as given in #2 is probably the best way to go. However I turned off snap because I didn't like it keep jumping my windows to the edge when in other use. I have a large screen and like to reduce the width of windows so that I'm still be able to access desktop icons each side of it.

However, even with snap turned off you can still do it. You just ensure that to the left of the Close X (top right) a "single" box is showing rather than the full screen "double box" (one click on the box changes it). You can then move the sides of any screen with the mouse (hold left key at edge) and drag it to produce the desired smaller window size and also move the whole window around by dragging it with the top bar. This can be done with any number of windows where you want to make comparisons.

EDIT: Above is based on desktop usage.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

In windows 8, open the windows from the traditional desktop rather than the start screen. I know that some programs like Internet Explorer act differently when opened that way. I personally use Windows 8 at work but stay mostly with the traditional desktop (preferring Windows 7 at home), I feel that they act more natural for me.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Re #4
Yes, my #3 was based on desktop usage too - have added an EDIT.
Snap still got in my way so turning it off was my personal preference.
