internet explorer for linux
 
I am looking for internet explorer for Linux.

Can I get it somewhere for download?

You need to download both Wine and Internet Explorer for Windows. Go to www.frankscorner.org for instructions on downloading and installing.

is there any special reason u need IE?
j2re1.5 and flash can display just fine in firefox with a bit of work.

reddazz 07-25-2005 11:51 AM

Yes its available from here. ;)

sailu_mvn 07-25-2005 11:24 PM

Please do not use those two words in the same sentence... IE does not deserve to be ported to Linux through wine or other means...

@damienduff and @kencaz:

IE is the main reason I can't switch entirely to Linux yet, as my bank requires IE for internet banking ... :(.

So I bookmarked the links ot this thread and will have a look...

JZL240I-U,
Your bank is stupid - but there's an easy workaround: See my post, and the following one in this thread:

JZL240I-U 07-26-2005 08:06 AM

Thanks for the hint, tredegar, I knew that.

What my bank does is much harder to circumvent. To keep it short, they distribute a program (star money) which uses IE to connect via a proprietary protocol into the bank's server :mad:.

Thus I need both to do my homebanking. If they don't switch to HBCI / FinTS by the end of the year I'll switch banks, and I told them I would do so ... :(

tredegar 07-26-2005 08:46 AM

Apologies if I was pointing out the blindingly obvious ( I missed the "Senior Member" bit), but your bank is even worse than I thought! I'd switch banks. Happy financial transactions!

JZL240I-U 07-26-2005 09:07 AM

No apologies needed, my Senior in front of the Member is due to the many (stupid) questions I asked here ;). And yes, I'll very probably get rid of that bank :D.

Will the "Star Money" program run under WINE? If not, you're probably stuck with Windows and IE.

JZL240I-U 07-26-2005 09:33 AM

Up to now I simply didn't dare to try to run star money on wine, simply because I can't really assess the security implications (it's my hard earned money, after all).

And then I was under the wrong impression, that it is hard to near impossible to run IE on wine...
