    IE is not available for Mac OS X.

    Safari (comes with the OS) or Firefox (free download) are two good alternatives.

    IE for Mac OS X 5.2.3

    This is the last version I had (I have deleted it). I just ran it recently and it pretty much does not work on most of the sites that I visit. The advice to use Safari, Firefox is the best advice. But they might have a copy on softpedia (or you can Google around for it).

    Yes, however you need a continuum transfunctioner and a delorean to take you back to 2001.

    No need for IE on the Mac. Get Chrome, Safari or Firefox instead :)

    There's supposed to be a way to get IE to run on OSX using Wine Bottler, but I haven't been able to make it work. Instead, I have various Windows XP guest OS'es installed with VirtualBox for testing purposes.

    I highly recommend FireFox for Mac, it has many useful addons.

    I'm a big fan of Chrome these days too. Chrome finally has add-ons, and is incredibly fast -- faster than Firefox by a long shot. I still use Firefox for development, but Chrome is my daily browser.

    BTW, I have an intense hatred of Internet Explorer. I recently did a big project where we HAD to support IE6. IE6 is awful, and IE7 and 8 aren't a whole lot better. I wish IE would just die a horrible, horrible death and go away forever.
