This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You can try ies4linux.

Beware though that they may not work as expected. In my personal experience, I had some problems using it. The best way to test how websites behave in these browsers is using a virtual machine with windows and IE's installed.

Your best bet is going to be to use a VM with Windows installed. None of the alternatives ever worked well at all.

+1. Multi-IE hacks under any platform are never quite the same as the real thing. It's usually okay for a quick layout check, but for anything complex involving scripting VMs are the only reliable solution. – bobince Sep 14 '09 at 12:49

You could also look at installing wine, the Windows emulator, and then installing IE under that.
