    Internet Explorer 6 for Linux

    13th July 2008

    IEs4Linux provides a convenient package of Internet Explorer 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, and (partially supported) 7.0 for Linux.

    It installed and runs fine under Debian Etch:

    However, as you could notice from the screenshot above, CPU use is almost 100% while IE6Linux is running. It is better illustrated by the next screen:

    I didn’t yet bother finding out what’s wrong, but that must have some kind of a fix, as running at 100% CPU on a laptop is … hot.
