Internet Explorer 6 on Mac OSX

May 2nd, 2011 | Filed under: Utilities | Tags: , , , ,

I never thought I would say this, but I finally have Internet Explorer 6 on my Mac!

No, I wont use it to browse the web casually, I’ll do it for development testing only. I promise.

You may ask why the hell am I going to do that. IE6 is dead, so it’s kind of stupid. I know. But tell that to the corporate company that has IE6 installed in all Windows PC’s and can’t upgrade because the IT department won’t do it because… well, just because.

I had that experience before, so it’s never a bad idea to play safe.

So, if you’re in the same position I was in that times, here it is:

Try it for yourself and enjoy it. Not.

    When you develop for “closed” corporations that can’t update their browsers, it’s useful for debugging. Fortunately, this scenario is happening less and less everyday 🙂

    I am in your exact same position, except with a friend’s school instead of a corporation! I’ve been using netrenderer but that doesn’t let you interact with the page at all. It’s a terrible situation to be in…
