Hello,

Installing IE? If you mean by IE Internet Explorer from Mickeysoft, then no, you cannot install it. What you could do is install Wine to run Windoze apps. I believe if you install Wine then you automatically have IE installed, but not sure what version though.

Kind regards,

Eric

Also look at winedoors, but you have an older fedora version, so I don't know how it will install. You could use google to look for their website.

Here is a package for Fedora 9. It's the only package for Fedora I could find on the rpm.pbone.net website.

Also look at CrossOver. This is the commeical (paid) version of WINE. Among other things, they automate the process of installing IE.

If you are doing any serious web development, you have to test with IE.

Its a sad fact in life. No matter how much we may hate IE, its still being used by many in companies and people that don't know any better. That margin is lowering rapidly, but as any decent web developer, you need to make sure your stuff works on all main browsers, even if you have to provide IE hacks to get it to work half way decent.

Wine does come with IE but I believe its a striped down version. There is instructions around on how to install it. Wine-Doors does a good job with it as well and Crossover is easier to use but not free.

First, Fedora 7 is ANCIENT...load something new. Chances are, even if you manage to shove IE onto it, you probably won't have the latest version of WINE running, and lots of other bits will be old too. Your results will be spotty, at best. Install the latest version of Fedora, and get up to date.

As far as IE goes, the best I could suggest is to run it on a Windows box. If you want to be SURE that IE is supported by your website, you need a real-world test. Most folks running IE are using Windows...with the 'real' Windows DLL's, libraries, plugins, etc. All/some of those may be different using Wine under Linux.

People using IE. I've noticed a shift in browsing where more and more people are aware of better alternatives. I've seen so many people who know little to nothing about computers using Firefox. I've seen help desk support from different companies suggesting Firefox for many browsing issues. I've seen statistics here and there showing IE's usage margins lowering.

This is just a observation I've noticed and you can look the data up yourself if you want or don't believe it. I'm not claiming any authority here, just a observation. And I'm not claiming IE is dieing or gone, just having less weight to throw around.

And as I stated developers still have to create various hacks on IE to make sure it works because there are still many that use it. I'm still stuck with developing for IE6 at my small company because its still the standard browser used among the company machines.

I feel your pain. Thankfully, the application I've developed for Tivoli monitoring, is web based. I wrote it to be standards-compliant, so naturally IE doesn't look quite right with it. Now, it FUNCTIONS, but looks like crap. When I've had users complain, I direct them to Microsoft, since it's THEIR crap browser that's broken.

Opera, Konqueror, Safari, Firefox, and others, all work fine. Even works on the iPhone browser. But thankfully, I'm in the position where I *CAN* tell them to use something else.

It isn't always, alas , only IE. One of my work web sites only will use IE 6 or 7 (they're about 1-2 years behind IE versions) running under Windows. Fortunately works in a VM, but ie4linux doesn't quite work, although it does for other websites that "only" want IE...

It's one of the main ways, IMO, that Microsoft maintains their monopoly.

I'm always looking for actual statistics. I have periodic encounters with companies that say "we don't support firefox" for their websites. It's good to be armed with actual numbers.

That last thing I remember is something around 20% for FF.
