Is there any way to use Firefox IE tab in ubuntu platform. Any other way to test the page how it will shown by IE
From what I remember, IE tab addon delegates the rendering to IE engine, so I doubt it shall ever be available for ubuntu.
There is, however, an IE for Linux that can be run in wine here.
Other solution is to use a windows virtual machine.
Side note: Microsoft recently released a handfull of VPC images with different versions of windows and ie that can be used licen-free until the end of the year: here. I don't know if VPC images can be run in ubuntu...
You could use some online services such as
Unfortuantely these are commercial services and carry subscription fees
Or you could setup a virtual machine with windows on it and try it in a native browser. Microsoft do provide XP images with different IE installations but I believe these are only for Virtual PC (which is windows only)
