Internet Explorer Extension Tab for Firefox
For those of us who use Mozilla’s Firefox as their default browser but are forced to use Internet Explorer (IE) occasionally, the IE Extension Tab is a pretty useful add-on.
Although this is a great tool for anyone who prefers Firefox as his/her default browser, it is especially great for Web developers because it allows them to see how their Web page is displayed in IE while they are in Firefox. Among other things, it will also allow you to manage Virtual Server 2005 in Firefox, which isn’t normally possible and you will be able to run Windows Update in Firefox.
This extension is derived from the famous extension IE View, but is not the same. While IE View always open IE-only pages in a separate Internet Explorer window, IE Tab can view them in a Mozilla/Firefox tab. Here are some of the features in the new version 1.0.9.
1. Support XP theme for form controls under Windows XP.
2. Supress annoying script errors.
3. Support saved passwords of IE.
4. Fix Shift+Delete (hotkey for cut)
5. Support IE windows with fixed size.
6. Support built-in popup blocker of Windows xp SP2
7. Support RegExp on Filterlist (use /YourRegExp/, prefix and postfix use “/”)
8. Build-in Stop-or-Reload (hidden pref, set “ietab.stop-or-reload” = true)
9. When right-click on icon to add a new URL, only picked up its domain.
10. Some minor bugs fixed.
1. IE’s ActiveX enable/disable settings do NOT work
2. All popup windows open in a new IE Tab
3. Navigation history list does NOT work
4. SSL icon does NOT work
5. Site’s favicon does NOT work
