no internet explorer in Linux

Red Hat 9 is very old, I can't remember what browsers come with it....

Anyway, Look into something Like Fedora if you are wanting to use a Red Hat Distro. Fedora is Red Hat's free cutting edge testing distro for their enterprise software.

There are a lot of browsers out there for Linux (windows too), Have a look at Firefox or Opera.

You can run Internet Explorer on Linux using WINE or CrossOver.

We can run IE in linux using WINE.
I already did it. But it's not fast as firefox. So I removed it.
I personally suggest you to use firefox, opera, konqueror.

I use Google Chrome, Firefox, or Opera. Depends on what mood I am in I guess. There is a package called IEs4Linux to give you Internet Explorer 6 and below, but it is not the same as on Windows. If I ever install Internet Explorer on my Linux machine it is only to test some web development stuff, Otherwise I just stay away from it.

I think your challenge is miscommunication and not knowing the difference between Windows and Linux. I am going out on a Limb here so I will preface this with I might be wrong and you actually do want Internet Explorer on Linux. But all in all I am assuming you meant where is the web browser in RedHat since Internet Explorer is the default Microsoft web browser that comes with Windows. It has been about 7 years since I used RedHat 9 or earlier, so I do not remember what browsers come with it. I think it comes with Mozilla Firefox, but like I said I can't really remember. I know the newer versions of RedHat Enterprise Linux come with Firefox.

If you are a beginner and think that there is IE for Linux, trust me, that's not what you want.

Use Firefox, Konqueror, Midori, Chromium, etc.

1. If this is really RH9 (codename Shrike), then its years old and out of date ie hasn't been updated in years:
I recommend Centos, the free version of Redhat Enterprise Linux (v5.4). Fedora is RH's R & D distro, bleeding edge.
2. What you want is the web browser for Linux, which is Firefox by default on RH. IE is an MS only browser.


how, internet, open
