There is ies4linux if you want IE. Its flakey and slow and basically garbage

http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/ies4linux

If you are a web developer and need to test sites I sugget you shell out for a windows licence of some shape and run a virtualised system to get a real IE experience. Ies4linux is not a good solution for anything

There are many many browsers for Linux (and windows too but folks are ignorant). Like Chromium, Arora, Opera, Kazehakase, Dillo, Swiftfox to name but a small few.

I wonder what you mean? "If there is a internet explorer for firefox 3.5 "

Firefox is one browser. IE is another browser.

But "If there is a internet explorer for firefox 3.5" ?

the reason people uses Firefox is to not use Internet Explorer but then you already have Firefox so what do you need IE for ?....this must be a joke, right ?

People use firefox as Microsoft were very slow in closing the holes in IE6 and people started looking at alternatives. Most have been resolved in IE7 and IE8 but most hae got used / complacent with Firefox and just keep using it

Personally I find it slow and bloated and use Arora and Chromium daily build and never looked back.

Can you help with this problem?
