Internet Explorer for Linux

This is NOT fake. Yes, this is true. If you are IE addict and want to use it on Linux, so you are not to be worry. There’s a solution for you.

IEs4Linux is the simpler way to have Microsoft Internet Explorer running on Linux (or any OS running Wine).

No clicks needed. No boring setup processes. No Wine complications. Just one easy script and you’ll get three IE versions to test your Sites. And it’s free and open source.

Who is the target public?

WebDesigners that want to move to Linux but still need to test their sites on IE.
People who have to open IE-only sites

The IEs installations are smaller than usual because they include only the necessary files to have a good test browser (there is no Outlook, Media Player etc).

General instructions

IEs 4 Linux needs two packages: cabextract and Wine. You can install them using your Linux package manager (synaptic, apt-get, yum, emerge etc) or go to their sites.

After that, download IEs 4 Linux. Extract it. Run ‘ies4linux’. Follow the instructions.

In a terminal, you can do:
wget http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/downloads/ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
cd ies4linux-*
./ies4linux

Note: Please see these legal notices before using IEs4Linux.

Please, don’t use any of these IEs to navigate!! Get Firefox
