I am on AOL., and I always go to my external MSIE5 to view sites.  Things 
just work better there, I can't put my finger on it.  

However, one point to note - a good deal of AOL users don't realize that 
their AOL browser (which might be a version of MSIE5)  is totally separate 
from the main one.  The AOL browser's default setting regarding graphics - is 
compressed and this makes a huge, notable difference in how things look to 
them.  All the Internet tools (ie; cache) are separate from the base MSIE5 

There is no known way of using AOL's browser without being hooked up with a 
screenname (to answer the original question).  However, if you would like a 
screenshot of how a page looks, go ahead and write me :)
