    I know that IE stopped making Mac compatible versions, but is there a place I can download the last version that was available? There are some IE native sites I need to go on for business.

    Thanks in advance.

    As far as I am aware you need windows platform to run there browser.

    I am using parallels 7 with win7 x64 and it works fine. But you will need a copy both os and parallels (note google is your friend on getting software)...

    I do some moderate programming, and use specialist software, hence the need. But I can suspend windows and flick over to mac in seconds..

    Otherwise you can look into wine, Unix back end.. Basically a software adaptor to run .exe in mac / Linux.

    I am sure there is someone on this forum that may have other idea's.

    If you've installed Lion, not a chance. It's a PPC product that wasn't ever released for Intel platforms. In fact, I don't know if it was ever even Rosetta compatible. Even if it could work, it's so old that the sites you need to use won't be compatible with it. Your best bet is to do Boot Camp or a Virtual Machine with Windows.

    Yeah, I believe they stopped at version 5. Most modern websites don't display properly in the browser.

    You can't. What you can do is change your browser's user agent string. Which browser are you using?
