Run Internet Explorer on Linux With IEs4Linux and Wine

Internet Explorer has the highest market share as far as browsers are concerned, and it would be foolish to not make your website compatible with it, but what if you are a Linux user? Should you just switch to Windows for Internet Explorer or for that matter install a virtual machine for a single piece of software?


If you are frowning hearing the alternatives, here is some reason for you to smile. IEs4Linux makes running Internet Explorer on Linux a breeze in combination with Wine.

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.

IEs4Linux currently supports IE6, IE5.5 and IE5, though it does not support the latest versions, it does provide a good starting point for testing your websites in Internet Explorer in Linux. The installation process is quite simple too.
