Many browsers on Fedora (Safari and IE)

If you need a lot of browsers, like me, to test some web stuff, this info can be useful for you.

Safari on Fedora

  • 1. You need Wine (yum install wine*)
  • 2. Download Safari from here (choose – Safari 5.0 for Windows XP, Vista or 7)
  • 3. Click on exe file to install.
  • 4. Done

IE on Fedora

I know, yes, I know. What a hell I need IE on Linux. Some of my clients still using this ‘most used browser’…

yum -y install wine*
yum -y install cabextract

Get the package and install it. But before that, read the legal stuff from here.  Yes, IE is FREE, but you still NEED a valid license for Windows to use it. WTF?!?

wget http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/downloads/ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
cd ies4linux-*
./ies4linux
