    Default Browsers IE look

    I make my web sites and need to view in IE browser format.

    I use Firefox and Opera. I know about virtualbox (VB) and Wine. I would not like to install VB or VM. I want to use OpenSuse 10.3 to view my HTML files. I write in CSS. The page looks great in Linux and Mac.

    I ask my Window friend to view the page and it miss aligned and some functions do not work.

    Is there a way to use my OpenSuse 10.3 to view in IE browser format.

    THX

    You could install Internet Explorer via CrossOver office, or maybe just
    'wine'. Whether or not it will be exact is hard to say, though. Write
    pages using good standards and it should be close and then use a windows
    VM if needed to refine those areas where IE doesn't adhere to the
    standards properly.

    Good luck.

    Try 'ie4linux' at http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/page/Main_Page

    it's a near automatic install of a customized wine, and one (or several)
    versions of Internet Explorer.

    works on 32bit and 64bit systems.

    Thank you all for the reponses. I forgot to state I did not want to install Wine either. I guess I will try it.

    For Suse
    http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/...-latest.tar.gz

    tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
    cd ies4linux-*
    ./ies4linux

    Well, the thing is that you still have to install Wine if you want to use ies4linux.

    Now, what you can do is trick the server into thinking you are using Internet Explorer on Windows. That is done by changing ths user-agent from your browser (this is tha identification of your system that gets sent to the server with every http request).

    On Firefox, this can be achieved by playing around with about:config or by installing an extension called User Agent Switcher.

    Also, if you are using KDE, KDE's browser Konqueror already have this feature. You just have to set it up on "Settings -> Configure Konqueror -> Browser Identification". Just put the name of the site you want, and what user-agent you want it to be used for that site. Or you can user "Tools -> Change Browser Identification" and choose the one you want.

    Cheers!

    Think of Wine as a 'necessary evil', needed to execute ANY windows based
    program in linux. the system calls for windows and linux are nothing alike,
    and something like wine is needed to 'translate' between the two so they can
    play together.

    Of course, you could always install Xen, VirtualBox, VMWare, qemu... and THEN
    install an ENTIRE windows operating system, taking large amounts of space,
    requiring its own care and feeding, and of course... the {cue ominous
    music!!!} KEY needed to even MAKE any relatively recent windows installation
    work.

    Add to that the boot time, updates, viruses, icky stuff.... nah...

    Wine... near instant start of programs, integrates into your own desktop,
    small memory footprint (relatively!!)... and so on...

    But wait... there's MORE!!

    well, probably... but I'm sure I've rambled on enough.

    I'm hoping to hear your successes with ie4linux and getting Internet
    Explo[rd]er working for you.

    Take Care,

    Loni

    Don't know what exactly you are using to write those pages, but the way to
    run IE goes trough WINE.

    A great addon to have on Firefox is IE Tab. This addon allows you view a webpage in the format of Internet Explorer. I know how much of a pain it can be to have problems with cross-browser compatibility. I script in CSS and have the same problem a lot. But this addon makes it a lot easier since you don't have to open a new program to view it: you can just open a new tab in an already open Firefox. I think you may need to upgrade to the latest version of Firefox if you haven't already.

    IE Tab requires IE to be installed and that you're on a Windows machine
    - hence it is inherently incompatible with openSUSE.

    I just installed IEs4Linux and it works great.
