Internet Explorer does work in Crossover Office which is based on WINE, but I don't know if it is any different in ordinary WINE.

Maybe you should try Mozilla Firefox or something, unless you really need IE for some specific web pages...

Erm... Maybe Because a lot of web pages embed streaming media content that is only really accessible through IE?

I think he's talking about Yaho LunchMusic, which is a music video streaming site. A lot of Linux based web browsers I've used just baulk at anything like that - and besides which it uses WMV format codecs, which may or may not be avaiable on Linux - although I haven't encountered any yet.

Even better; why mIRC when there is (insert name of one of ... 8 million IRC clients here), and why WinRAR when there is (insert name of one of ... 8 million [de]compression programs here).

The codecs exist. I've yet to find anything from my Windows days that xine can't play with the codecs available.
