browser other than firefox


hello.
I need to open web sites build with ASP and they don't open well with the fire fox. I know that they are working ok (with IE).
Is there any other recommanded browser that will help me? I know that there was IE 5 for linux, but microsoft removed it from there web site, any way to find it??

if firefox is not opening the page, then the page is not coded properly. its that simple.

you can still run IE in *nix, you just need to get it to play nice with wine or crossover office.

have you tried Mozilla. Its the internet suite from the mozilla team. some sites only recognize IE and Netscape, and I think Mozilla fits the bill. I have had problems with some sights using firefox since they changed the name. IE and Mozilla Suite seem to run fine on them though.

Hard to tell, don't know you whole situation.
