Running IE6, IE7, IE8 on OSX

February 18th, 2011
ie, tech, mac, web  [html]
I use a mac at work now, and I'd like to be able to run internet explorer on it to see if our site renders right. Remote logins into a windows computer are a pain. This is an intel mac, and it's unix based, so it ought to be able to run wine. Apparently it can:
  1. Download winebottler
  2. drag wine and winebottler into applications
  3. open winebottler, click "install predefined prefixes"
  4. install "microsoft internet explorer 7"
Winebottler wouldn't install ie6, and its install of ie8 wouldn't launch, but it's nice to have ie7.
