Favorite FireFox extensions – We still need IE

I read this post and it clearly shows that you simply can’t stop using the Internet Explorer engine.

 

Quoting

Joel on Software talks about his favorite FireFox Extensions. I was already using two of the three, but did not know about IETab.

“IETab takes advantage of the fact that Internet Explorer is available as an ActiveX control, which is available to be embedded in any Windows application, to open certain websites in Firefox using Internet Explorer. Whenever a website comes up complaining that you need to get “Netscape 4.0 or some other modern browser” you can just right click on the tab and it’ll pop up right in Firefox being rendered by Internet Explorer. You can set up a list of websites that always come up in IE tabs.”

An excellent addition. It allows me to avoid having to load IE separately for certain Microsoft sites. Well done!
