    I'm using iBook G4. I wonder if there's any ways to launch IE only pages in Firefox (I'm using Firefox 2.0) or Safari. I know about the Firefox extention IE tab view 1.3.3, but it appears working only with Firefox for Windows, not mac. It's very frustrating for failing to load IE only pages with the browsers on my mac.

    Pls help.

    It depends what makes them IE only. If it's simply server side sniffing then you can spoof the user agent. If it's bad CSS or JavaScript then you can probably get by as-is. If the site use Active-X then you are stuffed as this is a Microsoft proprietary technology that MS have chosen not to port to any platform other than Windows.

    Gone but not forgotten.
    Opera sometimes works better than the other two and other times, there isn't much you can do, as with ActiveX/OLE2, which has already been mentioned.
