Internet Explorer for Linux IE4Linux

What a terrible idea… and yet very useful. Let me explain. If you are a web developer you will have to test you web apps or sites on IE, specially because IE lives in it’s own little world but still a lot of people use it. Anyway, I came across this application IE4Linux which installs a minimalist version of Internet Explorer on your Linux. The applications runs on Wine and will run with the minimal functionality, just enough for testing. IE4Linux can be found at the project’s official website and if you don’t have Wine or don’t know what it is have a look here. With wine you can run several Windows applications on Linux, I don’t really advocate doing it but sometimes it helps with migration.
