    Internet explorer got discontinued for mac ageees ago.

    IE is rubbish, if you need it for development purposes you can try using user agents in safari/firefox?

    Nope.
    Microsoft is no longer developing Internet Explorer for Mac.

    IE7 is old news anyway. IE8 was officially released ;)

    Everyone :rolleyes:

    Anyway there could be a wealth of reasons as why this person needs IE7 and suggesting other browser won't really help in most regards.

    IE7 is windows only afaik however you can use it on your mac through parallels, vmware, bootcamp et al.

    IE6 runs in CrossOver just fine. IE7 (and the just released IE8) does not, though. That doesn't mean running IE7 and IE8 on your Mac cannot be done, though.

    Given the differences that could arise from things like fonts, I would rather suggest running IE7 in a real Windows OS via VMWare or Parallels.

    And if he was asking for IE7 as his everyday browser, no such luck. But Safari, Opera and Firefox are all available on OS X.

    No. If you have an Intel-based Mac, then you can run ies4osx. This package binds Internet Explorer 6 with WINE in an X11-based application. If you need Internet Explorer 7-specific features on your Mac, however, then you are SOL.

    My other half sometimes works from home using Citrix ICA client. On our old Vista PC, this only worked with IE and not FF.

    Now we have a Mac I'm wondering whether it will work with Safari - if not I might have to try a really old Mac version of IE (from here:http://mac.oldapps.com/internet_explorer.php)

    Does anyone else use the browser-based Citrix ICA client?

    I don't have boot camp, so using IE in windows is not an option.

    The Citrix ICA Client for MacOS X explicitly supports Safari. It is downloadable from the Citrix website?

    I installed ies4osx for my Mom, as she needed IE to use FMLS for real estate.

    However, like you had mentioned, the FMLS website would run with ies4osx, but not properly due to the specific features in IE that were needed.

    If you truly need IE for anything, then the Windows OS is your only bet.
