Another reason not to use Windows!

Wow! I have just got Internet Explorer 6 running in Kubuntu! So now, I don't need to boot back into Windows to test a webpage design anymore. That is so cool.
How you ask!
Well, as you know already I am a fan of Stumbleupon and today I stumbled upon Ies4Linux.
This is a terrific little application (open source of course) that runs IE6, 5.5 and 5 under Wine in many flavours of Linux distributions.
No problems installing it and voila IE6.

And here is the proof - Sorry the image is not super sharp! Now that could be useful for any of you using Linux, to develop web pages requiring testing in the worlds most used browser? I am certainly glad to have found it.


  1. U can use IE7 on your *buntu =) use google and brain

  2. I don't want to use IE7!!!!!! I use Firefox like most sensible people! I only want to have access to the various versions of IE for coding purposes.
