Internet Explorer on Linux


When developing my web sites I need to test them with Internet Explorer, after all it’s the most used browser. As my home computer (running Windows) died, I tried IEs4Linux.

Internet Explorer 6 on Linux

The stable version of IEs4Linux can run Internet Explorer 5, 5.5 and 6. If you want to run IE 7 (or better the GUI of IE 6 with the engine of IE 7) you need the 2.5 beta version. To run all these versions of Internet Explorer under Debian unstable, install wine and cabextract, then follow these instructions:

wget http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/downloads/ies4linux-2.5beta2.tar.gz
tar xzf ies4linux-2.5beta2.tar.gz
cd ies4linux-2.5beta5/
./ies4linux --install-ie5 --install-ie55 --beta-install-ie7

Si, anch’io lo uso per scopo testing. Molto utile.
