Internet Explorer for Linux

Sometimes I want to test my web pages under MSIE. Sometimes I have to view foreign pages under MSIE. Under Linux was not easy solution except reboot to Windows or start Wine or VMWare-like emulator. Now comes much faster and much easier solution.

Project IEs for Linux connects usability of Wine with available versions of original MSIE. All is covered by nice installer written in Python. You have almost no additional tasks to install it.

Fast and easy way to install ies4linux in Debian Kubuntu:

Install wine
# apt-get install wine wine-dev wine-gecko msttcorefonts

Install ies4linux
$ wget
$ tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
$ cd ies4linux-*
$ ./ies4linux

Installer will guide you through installation and finally makes icons on your desktop.
