Firefox Extension: IE Tab

Published December 1st, 2005

I develop almost entirely in Mozilla Firefox, but of course I have to check all my work with Microsoft Internet Explorer. It’s a drag, but it has to be done. However today someone pointed out the IE Tab extension that allows you to switch between Firefox and Internet Explorer rendering engines, from within a Firefox tab, at the click of a button. So you can check the same page in both browsers very quickly, or compare them side-by-side in separate tabs.

Very smart.

    Nice find – I used to have another extension (I forget the name as I removed it for 1.5) which added a right-click and fired open the current page in an IE window, but this looks much better.
