    I'm trying to view some web training videos on Safari and it doesn't display. I checked the requirements and it says that it only supports IE unfortunately.

    Since IE does not make a version for Mac anymore, do you think Firefox might work? If I download Firefox, will it be too draining on my MBA to have two browsers going, since it only has 2MB RAM?

    Firefox is unlikely to work. When IE is specified, anything not involving Windows is unlikely to work, especially with video, even on changing the user-agent string.

    If you need Windows temporarily, download VirtualBox and Windows 7. You'll get Windows free in a virtual machine until next year.
