Viewing pages designed for IE


Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows how I can access webpages that were made specifically for Internet Explorer on Linux. I generally use Firefox 2, which is great, but there is one webpage I really need to use for work that gives the message "This page was designed for IE, please download it here" when I view it with Firefox. I thought I could download IE and install it through wine but the ***** microsoft website has all sorts of authentication nuts and bolts before it lets the user download the damn .exe file, and I don't think Ubuntu 6.10 qualifies as a genuine MS product.

Thanks in advance for your help,
Cheers

Search google for keyword ies4linux for installing IE in Linux

You can also change your browser identification to fool the website you are trying to view into thinking you are using Internet Explorer.

Firefox should have an extension for this. I think the extension is called "user agent switcher"

Opera, KDE has an option to do this..
