    Does Internet Explorer for Mac... still exist??
    Few sites I go to won't work on Safari or even Firefox for Mac.
    Or is there an alternative besides Safari or Firefox that may be feasible.
    Thx.

    It does not still exist for Mac, but you can change the User Agent in Safari from the Develop menu to view as you would in IE.

    For all intents and purposes nope.

    You'll need to use VMware and run a copy of windows if you have to use those sites.

    A for instance, I do the payroll for my church. ADP requires IE, so along with running quickbooks in windows, I also need to do the payroll there as well.

    There is a way for you to run the PC version of IE in the Mac using WineBottler:

    Haven't used it in a while as I have VMware with Windows and run IE from there.

    If I am not mistaken this only works on PC, not on Mac.

    IE is no longer available for Mac. Hell, IE 9 isn't even available for XP. :p Chrome's also available for Mac. Between Chrome, Firefox and Safari everything should load tbh.

    This is correct.

    Except web access for Outlook. It works fine in light mode, but there's an advanced mode that only works in IE, and changing the user agent doesn't work. 99.9% of website will work in Chrome, FF, or Safari, but there's a .1% of websites that only work in actual IE.
