IE Tab - Firefox can pretend to be Internet Explorer

tip from Dan, Sept 2006, permalink


Last week I posted a review on AvantBrowser. Shortly after that, Dan wrote me to let me know that he doesn't see any reason to keep a browser that uses Internet Explorer. He uses a Firefox add-on when he needs to view a page that is only supported by IE.


From Dan

If you need occasional IE rendering, grab the IETab add-on, which works for both 1.5 & 2.0b2. With it, I easily run MS Update and Office Update in Firefox. You can dynamically switch the current page to IE rendering and predefine URLs for such as the MS updates to automatically open in IETab.

Thanks Dan. Here's more info on this browser add-on for Firefox.



Quote from Mozilla.org

IE Tab - an extension from Taiwan, features: Embedding Internet Explorer in tabs of Mozilla/Firefox.


This is a great tool for web developers, since you can easily see how your webpage displayed in IE with just one click and then switch back to Firefox.
