Microsoft Internet Explorer running on Linux

If you want to use Microsoft Internet Explorer running on Linux (Linux dedicated server or any OS running Wine like Mac OS X and other BSDs) the simpler to do is install IEs4Linux. 

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

Currently support IE6, IE5.5 and IE5. There is also beta support for IE7, IE8 and IE9.


OK let see from the original website on:


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 that do not work on Linux browsers

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).

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