HOWTO: Run Internet Explorer on Linux January 8, 2007

Posted by devhen in HOWTO, Linux.

The IEs4Linux project makes installing and running Internet Explorer on Linux a cinch. Just follow these simple instructions. Their script will download and install IE6 and, optionally, IE5 and IE5.5 as well. Everything is automated and extremely easy. You can also install Internet Explorer 7 by following these instructions. I was able to get all four versions of IE running on both my CentOS and Fedora machines in no time. There are non distro-specific instructions as well as instructions for the Ubuntu/Xubuntu/Kubuntu, Fedora, Gentoo and Debian distributions. Basically, if you’re running Linux with Wine and cabextract installed you’re good to go. Many thanks to the IEs4Linux project for making this so easy for us. We should all seriously consider donating to the project. 😉
