    Installation of IE8 in a Linux Distro


    Would appreciate advice from anyone who has installed (successfully) Internet Explorer 8 or higher into a Linux Distro. Either your experience, a website, or directions would be appreciated. I'm working with Linux Mint Debian.
    Thanks,

    Well, technically there is IEs4Linux

    But beware, that there is a legal dependency for you to own a valid windows license
    Legal notices - IEs4Linux
    and it has some severe issues
    Known issues - IEs4Linux

    What is your usecase? Why do you need IE?
    My guess is, that a VM with windows is a better solution.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    My thoughts exactly. I find it best to keep Windows in it's own box (a VM would be perfect) and I try to use it only when absolutely necessary.
