Is there any way to run Internet Explorer in a tab in Opera? Much of the corporate website where I work is built for Internet Explorer 6 (what is up with that?), so if I want to access it using my default browser, it has to either be Internet Explorer 6 or Firefox with the extension IE Tab. Is there any way to do the same with Opera?


You can use Neptune to add IE Tab-like functionality to Opera.


Opera also has an "Open with" menu item. If a page doesn't work properly, right click anywhere on the page (except on an image) and select "Open with" -> "Internet Explorer". The list will also include other installed browsers such as Firefox and Chrome.

Try using an Opera add-on called Install Chrome Extensions and then install the Chrome extension IE Tab.
