How can I install Internet Explorer in Linux?

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.

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