More about this extension

Some sites can only be displayed using IE, and with this extension you can now see those sites without leaving Chrome. Great for web developers who want to test the IE rendering engine, users who use sites with ActiveX controls, and users who want to use the explorer view for local files (i.e. file:// URLs).

Includes the ability to automatically open certain URLs in an IE Tab by specifying a URL filter.

    Surprisingly this extension does NOT work on Ubuntu(GNU/Linux) 9.10

  2. PuppyLinux says:

    It does NOT work in Puppy-Linux either!

  3. TheJesus says:

    What the hell, that’s not surprising.

  4. JR Namida says:

    Yes, this would be good if it ran in Mepis 8, or the newer pending KDE 4 – 8.5 release. There are times that employees of companies that use Internet Explorer. only websites desperately need this type of solution, in a Linux or Mac only household.

    Why companies force employees to purchase a computer running Microsoft operating system, a malware magnet to me is beyond sad, but in this continuing war ravaged economic climate with its 20%+ unemployment, employees are forced to bend to employers ridicules nonsense rules.

    Forcing a Linux or Mac household to the library, neighbor’s system, or worse forced them to use a Boot Camp/Virtualbox, or dual boot system, to check working hours and must read information is ludicrous misguided corporate joke.

    I hope someone will find a way to run an protected/100% Isolated Internet Explorer inside Google Chrome for Mac, and the many Debian based Linux operating system to defeat this horrid Microsoft only www corporate bungling.

    Works with: Developer Builds (WINDOWS only).

    Hhmmm….

  6. Thomas says:

    I could not even install the thing. Just a funny remark that I could not downgrade! Why do you not put up a page with requirements and how the browser would look like whe IE Tabs is suvvessfully installed.

  7. Floobit says:

    I concur. Not working on ubuntu 9.10.

  8. mc says:

    Just to be brutally explicit here–is it a requirement that the instance of Chrome running the IETab extension be running itself on Windows? It may sound like a stupid question to some of you, but to someone who does not run Windows it is not only not a stupid question, but a critical one. I run MacOS. Yes, Chromium developer builds on Mac run extensions. They all seem to work fine for me. Except for IETab. Actually, I don’t know that it’s not working. No errors are reported, except ‘missing plugin’. A tab opens, and that tab loads websites just fine, except for ones that need IE. The developer website is not help either; it doesn’t mention platform requirements.

    Linux Users, Try some WINE with that WHINE

  10. ROF says:

    I need this to work with MACOSX or UBUNTU 10.04.

    Developers… there is any way? or there is no way to do it? if there is a way, why you don´t do it?

    The person that launch this first, will be very popular.

    HOPE YOU PEOPLE DO IT SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is a desperate scream!

    Thanks!

  11. Captain obvious says:

    um…. could i point out the obvious here… The extension does what the Firefox version does… it requires IE to be installed because it doesn’t install the IE engine itself… it simply uses the IE engine to render the page. For a bunch of people using Mac’s and Linux… you sure don’t so a simple look at the help pages before posting.

  12. Jared Savage says:

    To anyone confused as to why it isn’t working in linux, it isn’t a full implementation of IE. It’s just wrapping IE core, which is only available with windows.

    In short, if you don’t have internet explorer installed on the machine, this will not work.

  13. Christine says:

    It installs fine, but when I click on the button to launch a new tab, the middle of the screen says, “Missing Plugin”. I launched an IE only URL, and I got a message that I must have IE 5.5 installed, so I guess this isn’t working.

  14. Peeter says:

    Of course it doesn’t work on Ubuntu, or any other Linux. See danny’s comment above.
    You need to have IE installed on your system, which means you have to be running Windows.

  15. JO says:

    Not ready for Linux prime time! I seem to remember reading that Google was moving to Linux since M$ windows had so many hacks/viruses.

    Wonder if this Chrome works internally in Google? I guess that is one way for the Google bosses to keep their employees from watching youtube videos.

  16. anna says:

    i’m on ubuntu and would like to print preview on chrome. how do i?!

  17. Amarnath says:

    Since IE tab chrome extensions works only on Windows OS. I hope it is NOT required to render IE browser in Chrome either. Windows already has IE browsers.

    As most of the developers prefer to use Linux for developing web based products, it would be great if google developers to develop extension plugin work on ubuntu(linux) browsers.

    My point is , it is totally waste of band width, etc working on Windows. Note: I am NOT any Windows products or Microsoft OS.

  18. Ahmed says:

    IE tab works on some linux distros like fedora but not working on ubuntu, amasingly google chrome extensions works on both windows & linux distros not like firefox, first i had chrome on win7 and i have ubuntu on my laptop synchronized my google account on chrome & it just worked like a charm didnt need to make one step to make it work, but same problem only on ubuntu “missing plugin” .

  19. bupo says:

    it doesn’t work!!

  20. Marcus Lindblom says:

    Works ok, but would’ve great if I could configure URL/domain where it’s automatically active.

    And add a right-click to URLs that said “Open in IE Tab”

  21. Marcus Lindblom says:

    Ah… the most recent version at https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/hehijbfgiekmjfkfjpbkbammjbdenadd does have all that.

    Time to update this entry…

  22. TheFatUglyNerd says:

    Is there a password saving option?

  23. camel says:

    “chrome ietab multi” is more powerful. this is most similar to original IE behavior. i like it.
