since m$ stopped support for mac/IE I cant find anyplace to download it. Of course I do not want to actually browse with it, just testing for cross browser compatability. Does anybody know a solid link for downloading Internet Explorer?

It should still be on the install disk for any computer or OS before 10.4, I think.

That's an "old" one, 5.1... the latest OS X version was 5.2.3.

It is still on version tracker though:

having too much beer Chuck? Your posts seem to be making less and less sense.

How am I failing to make sense? Other than mistaking you for the original poster saying IE 5.1 wouldn't suffice…

Don't bother. Few Mac users use IE anymore, so you might as well get the WinXP version of IE and run it in Virtual PC to test for true cross-platform compatibility. The Mac version doesn't even run ActiveX.

He didn't say he wanted a review of IE 5.2. VersionTracker doesn't store the files itself, so that brings us back to werther's original problem of Microsoft taking the download off its site.

The 5.2 download on version tracker still works. Try to calm down a bit.

http://browsers.evolt.org

These guys have a huge archive of just about every browser ever made. The last version of IE/Mac is in there, as well as older versions.
