I am getting sick and tired of netscape/Mozilla and Konqueror. Too buggy for me. Does anybody know how I can get ANY version of Internert Explorer (4.0 ot above) to work under Linux? Thanx beforehand
read the @*%$ threads!!
who makes the thing!! (hint: BILL GATES!!)
if you don't like the browsers in linux................
send freakin' smoke signals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Actually I hate IE, with their no standards of compliance to W3C, but oh well.
Think about it though, IE is part of Windows OS, so it most likely needs more than just IE to run properly. If you want IE, you should just run Windows with an emulator in Linux, but what would be the point of that right, might as well just boot up into Windows is what I say.
Use opera http://www.opera.com
if you'd fall for Internet Exploiter you might as well use Outpook Extreme and get all the nice features of it to run embeded nice code (with something like fsck mounted partitions) into e-mail once you preview it without even opening the supplied attachment which would delete your entire address book, put a backdoor, and send itself to everyone in your former address book, lol you must be dreaming saying
the web browsers in Linux don't match up to Internet Explorer. At least not YET!
I c. Well you must admit that IE is a good browser. Yes Its not perfect, but there is no such thing as perfect software . Anyways, It looks Like I might have to live with Netscape and its clones (Mozilla). Thanx for the replies everyone
Yeah I would say use opera. It has a nice feature where you can tell it to imitate IE5.0, so that the pages you goto think you are using a IE5.0 browser rather then Opera, but still this will not work 100% of the time.
I haven't ued Mozilla or Netscape, so I can't tell if they have the same feature.
To go a little off the subject, the reason why IE seems like it renders pages better and they look better on IE, has nothing to do with IE being better then any other browser. The problem is that IE goes against the Web Standards. Since most people use IE, many web developers just don't care, and produce the code that works for IE, even though it is against standards, which means it won't work properly for any other browser.
i wouldn't be a true KDE advocate if i didn't tell u to try konqueror 3.0.1
it's an excellent browser. It's almost as good as mozilla (rendering wise), but it's a lot faster and it's well integrated into KDE. Seeing as how u like IE i suppose Tabbed browsing isn't really a concern of u so the fact that konq still doesn't have tabs shouldn't bother u (the tabs are coming in konq 3.1 though )
