Internet Explorer 6 On Linux With IE4Linux

| 2 Comments

I have been using IE4Linux for a while in order to test some websites I'm responsible for and make sure that they are useful to people who still have to use Internet Explorer. To make it even handier, the IE View extension for Firefox works well under Ubuntu.

The only problem I've run into is that the "find" button in the IE View preferences doesn't like Linux file paths, so to use it you have to enter the path to IE manually. In my case this is /home/niall/bin/ie6. Once it's setup properly, I can rightclick on the link and select "Open Link Target In IE" and suffer for a few minutes in the name of testing!

Interesting. I never knew IE could run in this manner. Must check that out once I install Ubuntu on my laptop.

Cormac,

Just waiting for IE7 support now :)
