Internet Explorer for Mac (also referred to as Internet Explorer:mac. IE:mac or Internet Explorer Macintosh Edition ) was a proprietary web browser developed by Microsoft for the Macintosh platform. Initial versions were developed from the same code base as Internet Explorer for Windows. Later versions diverged, particularly with the release of version 5 which included the Tasman rendering engine .
As a result of the five-year agreement between Apple and Microsoft in 1997. it was the default browser on Mac OS before it was replaced by Apple's own Safari web browser in 2003. Internet Explorer for Mac remained available for download from Microsoft until January 31. 2006. However, no major updates had been released since March 27. 2000. aside from bug fixes and updates to take advantage of new features in Mac OS X .
On June 13 2003. Microsoft announced that it was ceasing further development of Internet Explorer for Mac. The browser was not included in default installation of Mac OS X v10.4 "Tiger" which was released on April 29. 2005. Microsoft discontinued support for the product on December 31. 2005 and removed the application from their Macintosh downloads site on January 31. 2006. Microsoft recommends "that Macintosh users migrate to more recent web browsing technologies such as Apple's Safari ."

Versions of Internet Explorer for Macintosh were released starting with version 2 in 1996, to version 5 which received its last patch in 2003. IE versions for Mac typically lagged several months to a year behind Windows versions, but included some unique developments including its own layout engine Tasman .
Internet Explorer 2.0 for Macintosh
The first version of Internet Explorer for the Macintosh operating system was a beta version of "Internet Explorer 2.0 for Macintosh", released on January 23 1996 as a free download from Microsoft's website. This first version was based on the Spyglass Mosaic web browser licensed from Spyglass. Available for both 68k and PPC based Macs running System 7.0.1 or later, it supported the embedding of a number of multimedia formats into web pages, including AVI and QuickTime formatted video and AIFF and WAV formatted audio. The final version was released three months later on April 23. Version 2.1 released in August of the same year, was mostly aimed at fixed bugs and improving stability, but also added a few features such as support for the NPAPI (the first version of Internet Explorer on any platform to do so) and support for QuickTime VR. AOL 3.0 for Macintosh used the IE 2.1 rendering engine in its built-in web browser.
Internet Explorer version 3.0 for Macintosh
Internet Explorer version 4.0 for Macintosh
At the 1997 Macworld Expo in Boston. on August 6. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates announced a partnership between Microsoft and Apple. Amongst other things, Apple agreed to bundle Internet Explorer with future versions of the Mac OS and make it the default browser instead of Netscape Navigator .
Five months later on January 6 1998. at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco. Microsoft announced the release of the final version of "Internet Explorer version 4.0 for Macintosh". Version 4 included support for offline browsing. Dynamic HTML. a new faster Java virtual machine and Security Zones that allow users or administrators to limit access to certain types of web content depending on which zone (for example Intranet or Internet) the content was coming from. The most publicized feature of Internet Explorer 4.0 was support for Microsoft's Active Channel technology, which was intended to deliver regularly updated content that users could personally tailor to their interests. However Active Channel failed to reach a wide audience.
At the same event, Apple announced the release of Mac OS 8.1. This was the first version of the Macintosh operating system to bundle Internet Explorer as its default browser per the agreement with Microsoft; however, version 4.0 was not ready in time to be included so version 3.01 was bundled on the CDs.
At the following year's San Francisco Macworld Expo on January 9 1999. Microsoft announced the release of "Internet Explorer 4.5 Macintosh Edition". This new version, which dropped 68K processor support, introduced Form AutoFill, Print Preview, the Page Holder pane which let a user hold a page of links on one side of the screen that opened pages in the right hand and support for Mac OS technology like Sherlock .
Internet Explorer 5 Macintosh Edition
Again a year later on January 5. 2000. Microsoft announced a new version of Internet Explorer at the San Francisco Macworld Expo, "Internet Explorer 5 Macintosh Edition" which was released two months later on March 27. 2000. The Windows version of Internet Explorer 5 had been released a year earlier, but used the Trident II layout engine. Version 5 introduced a new rendering engine called Tasman that was designed to be more compliant with W3C standards such as HTML 4.0, CSS Level 1. DOM Level 1. and ECMAScript. It also introduced a number of features that were later added to other browsers such as complete support for the PNG image standard (which previous versions did not support at all), DOCTYPE switching, Text Zoom and XML source view. It also included an Auction Manager for tracking auctions in sites like eBay and an Internet Scrapbook to allow users to quickly and easily store and organize web content (for example an image or a piece of selected text). The initial release was just for Mac OS 8 and Mac OS 9, however two months after that release on May 15 a Mac OS X DP4 version was released, bundled with the Mac OS X DP4 that was handed out to developers at the 2000 Worldwide Developers Conference. The Mac OS X Public Beta included another preview of the Mac OS X version of IE. The release of Mac OS X v10.0 on March 24 2001 included yet another preview of the Mac OS X version of IE and that was updated later, and the release of Mac OS X v10.1 on September 25 2001 included the final version of IE 5.1 for Mac OS X. IE 5.1 for Mac OS 8 and Mac OS 9 was released on December 18 2001 .
According to Jorg Brown, one of the IE for Mac developers at Microsoft, after version 5 most of the team that produced IE for Mac were moved to another project. IE for Mac was relegated to something they were expected to work on in their "spare time". [ [http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=171546&cid=14288661 Microsoft Ends IE for Mac ] ] On June 17 2002 Microsoft announced the release of version 5.2 (the first Mac OS X-only release) which included a few performance and security fixes and support for Mac OS X features likes Quartz text smoothing.
During 2002 Microsoft reassigned developers to develop version 6 of Internet Explorer for Mac, that was intended to be used as the base for a new product. MSN for Mac OS X would be a subscription-only browser that worked with the online MSN service, incorporate features like an address book, junk mail filters and an MSN Messenger client. However after hearing that Apple had started development of their own browser, they canceled the standalone browser development and concentrated on the MSN browser, which was released on May 15 2003 .
On June 13. 2003. PC Pro reported that Macintosh Business Unit general manager Roz Ho had confirmed that aside from updates to fix security problems, there would be no new versions of Internet Explorer from Microsoft. Three days later on June 16. Microsoft released the final version for Mac OS X, version 5.2.3 and a month later on July 11. they released the final version for Mac OS 8 and Mac OS 9, version 5.1.7. The last versions of Internet Explorer for Mac had a distinguishing blue logo that was the base for the logo used in Internet Explorer 6 for Windows (The Windows one just had a lighter blue, and it was less 3-D).
Internet Explorer 5 for Mac Distinguishing features
These are features found in Internet Explorer for Mac, which were not found in common contemporary browsers (with the possible exception of Internet Explorer for Windows). Some are still not features in many browsers.
* Support for furigana .
* Scrapbook feature lets the user archive any page in its current state.
* Auction Manager feature automatically tracks eBay auctions.
* Although Internet Explorer for Mac did not have any PNG support at all until version 5.0 (a year or two after most popular browsers), the PNG support added in that version was unusually robust, including transparency and color correction.
* An option to change the browser color, such as to match the color of the user's iMac. The first builds had 9 choices of colors, but later builds had 15.
* Print Preview functionality allowing for adjustment of the font-size from within the preview pane.
* Page Holder sidebar functionality allowing users to hold a page in the sidebar (links-only view available too) and load clicked links in the main browser window. Much of this functionality was replaced with tabbed browsing in later browsers, but not the links-only view.
* Adds the URL from which content was downloaded to the Finder's Comment field (visible through Get Info).
* A white-on-black address bar for much of its life, that always used small Geneva non-anti-aliased text.
These are features found in Internet Explorer for Mac and some other of its contemporaries.
* Auto-complete in the address bar responds to typing partial URLs or page titles, searches favorites and history
* Go menu allows access to the persistent global browser history
* Tasman rendering engine offers superior Fact|date=March 2008 CSS support compared to Trident III in other Internet Explorer 5 versions, and was not affected by the Internet Explorer box model bug (not fixed until Trident IV in IE6 )
* Text zoom allows the user to resize text on any page, regardless of how text size is specified
* Internet Explorer for Windows
* List of web browsers
* Comparison of web browsers

Internet Explorer for Mac (также называемый Internet Explorer for Macintosh. Internet Explorer Macintosh Edition. Internet Explorer:mac и IE:mac ) Ч браузер, созданный компанией Microsoft дл€ платформы Macintosh. ѕервые версии были основаны на Internet Explorer for Windows. ƒвижок п€той версии браузера (выпущенного в 2000 году) был разработан с нул€ и называетс€ Tasman .1. »стори€
¬ерсии Internet Explorer дл€ Macintosh выпускались начина€ с версии 2 (1996 год).
¬ 1997 году было заключено п€тилетнее соглашение между Apple и Microsoft: по этому договору Microsoft об€залась бесплатно разрабатывать браузер, который бы входил в базовую поставку системы.
— 27 марта 2002 года браузер не имел никаких серьЄзных обновлений, кроме исправлени€ ошибок. Ќаконец в 2003 году IE for Mac был заменен браузером компании Apple Safari.
13 июн€ 2003 года, компани€ Microsoft объ€вила об окончании поддержки Internet Explorer for Mac. Ѕраузер не был включен в Mac OS X 10.4 Ђ“игрї, который вышел 29 апрел€ 2005 года. Microsoft завершила поддержку браузера 31 декабр€ 2005 года и удалила ссылку на его загрузку 31 €нвар€ 2006 года. омпани€ порекомендовала пользовател€м платформы Macintosh перейти на более современные браузеры, например, Safari. 1.1. Internet Explorer 2.0 for Macintosh
Ѕета-верси€ Internet Explorer 2.0 for Mac. основанна€ на браузере SpyGlass Mosaic, увидела свет 23 €нвар€ 1996 года. ќна была доступна на архитектурах 68k и PPC под управлением операционной системы Mac OS 7.0.1, эта верси€ поддерживала размещение на веб-страницах различных мультимедийных форматов, таких как AVI и QuickTime дл€ видео и AIFF и WAV дл€ аудио. ќкончательный релиз браузера произошЄл 23 апрел€.
¬ерси€ 2.1, выпущенна€ в августе того же года, была нацелена на исправление найденных ошибок и, кроме того, добавила несколько особенностей, например, NPAPI (кроссплатформенна€ поддержка плагинов) и QuickTime VR.1.2. Internet Explorer 3.0 for Macintosh
5 но€бр€ 1996 года компани€ Microsoft объ€вила о выпуске бета-версии Internet Explorer 3.0 for Mac . Ётот релиз включал в себ€ поддержку HTML 3.2, CSS (каскадные таблицы стилей), Java-апплетов и средств управлени€ ActiveX. ‘инальный выпуск данной версии браузера стал доступен 8 €нвар€ 1997 года, в нЄм была добавлена поддержка протоколов сетевой аутентификации SSL и NTLM, а также систем оценок PICS и RSACi  .
6 августа 1997 года на конференции MacWorld Expo, котора€ проходила в Ѕостоне, —тив ƒжобс и Ѕилл √ейтс объ€вили о сотрудничестве между возглавл€емыми ими компани€ми, Apple и Microsoft. ќдним из пунктов соглашени€ стала замена браузера Netscape Navigator на Internet Explorer в будущих верси€х операционной системы Mac OS.
6 €нвар€ 1998 года на той же конференции в —ан-‘ранциско компани€ Microsoft анонсировала выпуск финальной версии Internet Explorer 4.0 for Mac. в которой по€вилась поддержка формата DHTML, функци€ оффлайн-просмотра и усовершенствованна€ Java Virtual Machine. роме того браузер научилс€ ограничивать доступ к контенту, поступаемому из различных зон безопасности (например, »нтернет или »нтранет). ≈щЄ одним нововведением стала функци€ активных каналов (Active Channel), которые представл€ли собой веб-страницу с содержимым, предназначенным пользователю.
¬ то же врем€ компани€ Apple анонсировала выпуск операционной системы Mac OS 8.1 в которой по умолчанию поставл€лс€ браузер Internet Explorer for Mac 3.01, что объ€сн€лось неготовностью четвЄртой версии.
¬ следующем году, 9 €нвар€ 1999 года, на конференции в —ан-‘ранциско была анонсирована нова€ верси€ браузера Internet Explorer 4.5 Macintosh Edition . ƒанный релиз больше не поддерживал архитектуру 68k, в нЄм по€вились автоматическое заполнение форм, предварительный просмотр печати, бокова€ панель и интеграци€ с поисковым средством Sherlock.1.4.

Intelligently Transfer Music
With iExplorer, getting music and other media from an iPhone, iPod or iPad to your Mac or PC couldn't be any easier. You can search for particular tracks, listen to them directly from your device and even drag and drop them to your computer. With the touch of a button you can copy those songs and even rebuild playlists directly from your device into iTunes.
Avoid Duplicates, save Meta-Data
If your music collection is scattered across multiple computers or devices; iExplorer is the tool that will help you finally unify your music library. With iTunes duplicate detection, iExplorer intelligently skips copying dupes from your device to your computer tracks so you can easily recover playlists or everything from your dusty old iPod with having to worry about swapping your computer with thousands of redundant tracks. And did we mention that when you do import music into iTunes, iExplorer saves your meta-data, such as play counts, ratings and other info?
Auto Transfer All Music & Playlists in One Step
Whether you're upgrading to a new, or whether your old one crashed and lost all its data, or your merging all your music from various iPods and iPhones on to one Mac or PC, iExplorer is the tool for the job. iExplorer lets you easily rebuild and recover your entire iTunes music collection from your iPod, iPhone or iPad with its "Auto Transfer" button that knows which tracks are missing from iTunes. With just one click iExplorer can put everything (music, ringtones, playlists & all), back into place.
Mount iPhone & iPad to Mac's Finder & Windows Explorer
iExplorer's disk mount capabilities allow you to use your iPhone, iPod or iPad like a flash drive. Want to view your iPhone's photos in Finder or Windows Explorer like you would from any other digital camera? Want to get file system access to data files contained within an app on your device? How about backing up or moving your app's high scores from one device to another? Want to save files directly from your favorite text or image editor to your iPad so you can take them to go? What about instantly seeing all your music listed out with title and artist in the track file names?
Not only does iExplorer 3 do all this, but it does it beautifully. You can easily make specific directories within your iOS accessible, or you can even mount the entire device from its root. With iExplorer 3's auto-mounting features, you can even seamlessly enable your iPhone or iPad to automatically appear in Finder or Windows Explorer every time you turn on the computer.
View & Save Voicemails, Address Book Contacts, Calendar, Reminders, Notes and More…
We've crafted seven magnificent utilities into iExplorer to allow you to browse, preview, save and export the most important information contained in the most important databases on your iPhones and iPads.
Within these utilities you can browse, recover, backup, export and save your data. View your appointments, events or your call history. Listen to your iPhone's voicemail messages and drag or export them to a folder on your computer. Everything is always just a couple of clicks away. Be in charge of your content.
SMS & iMessages
In the last few years we've seen SMSs and iMessages grow in popularity. These messages are replacing phone calls, voicemails and even emails.

Whether you snapped a pic using the camera on your iPhone, or if synced saved images from your computer to an iPod Classic, or if have videos and images saved in the iCloud - iExplorer is the best app to view and export these images.
Movies & TV Shows
iExplorer not only works great with the videos that you created, but it also works great with the movies, TV shows and other media that you've downloaded to the device or purchased in iTunes.
Maybe the only thing more impressive than the variety of photos and videos that iExplorer supports, is its carefully designed thumbnails, full resolution previews and export options offered.
With iExplorer 3, you can access more files and folders without modifying (jailbreaking) your device. Want to access the files and folders of your device's apps? Done. How about browsing through your backup data? Check. What about the media folders containing your photos and iTunes purchases? We've got that too. What about files in apps that are synced to iCloud?

Earlier this year, the Microsoft team launched a new tool to make it easier to test sites in IE regardless of which platform youТre on; seriously! ItТs part of their work on Microsoft Edge and its new rendering engine and new user-agent string. which is a fork of Trident thatТs far more interoperable with the mobile Web.
In this tutorial, I want to demonstrate what this looks like in Chrome on my MacBook and how to set it up.
tl;dr? Here are some Vines to show you it in action:
The tool is called RemoteIE and is designed to offer a virtualized version of the latest version of IE. This allows you to test out the latest version of IE without having to have a virtual machine installed. And if you want to test for past versions of IE, you can always use the free virtual machines on http://dev.modern.ie by starting here .Getting It All Set Up
I ran through the steps to use the tool myself and wanted to document everything in case you run into any hiccups.
First, head on over to RemoteIE which will take you to this page:
YouТll need a Microsoft account to use the service since it needs to associate the service to that account.
If you have a Live.com or Outlook.com account you can use that, or you can register for a new one. No, you donТt need to use those services for anything else if you donТt want to, but theyТve actually gotten way better and might be worth a look.
Next, youТll want to select which server is closest to you so you have the best possible performance:
At this point youТll be asked to download the Microsoft Remote Desktop app for whichever platform you want. This could be for
As you can see, I was serious when I said this would be available cross-platform. On your Mac, download the app from the Apple App Store. Clicking on the Mac link will direct you to the online Apple store site .
Click on the View in Mac App Store button so that you can launch the App Store app on your Mac. YouТll be presented by a confirmation notice from Chrome (or your favorite OS X browser) to launch the external app:
And after you confirm it youТll be in the App Store entry:
In my case, I already had the app installed which is why it shows УOpenФ. If you donТt have it installed, go ahead and do so. Once you've installed it, look for it in Finder:
Or if youТre like me, use the awesome Alfred to find it:
Now, the next step is why I wanted to create this tutorial, since it isnТt immediately obvious once you run Remote Desktop what to do. When you launch the app, if you take a look at the header, youТll see an entry called Microsoft RemoteApp. ThatТs what youТll want to click:
From there, youТll now be asked for your Microsoft account information to determine what app subscriptions you have available:
Now that itТs figured out that youТre legit, youТll see a dialog showing what your app subscriptions are:
Again, I want to help you avoid confusion here since the UX at this specific point is a little off. When you click on the checkbox for УInternet Explorer (email: email@example.com)Ф, an entry for УInternet Explorer->IE Technical Preview Ф will be added to the main Microsoft Remote Desktop app BUT the dialog with the checkbox I just mentioned doesnТt disappear. See here:
So heads up. Once you see the entry in the main app that says IE Technical Preview. you can close the dialog box with the checkbox. You can see in the previous image how I highlighted the close dialog icon.
WeТre almost done. Next, go ahead and double-click on IE Technical Preview to launch your virtualized version of IE. ItТll take just a minute to spin everything up so be patient:
And once itТs up, you have a full-blown version of IE 11 Technical Preview ready for you. Notice in the following image how the F12 Developer Tools are there for you:More Testing Tools
This is a great new tool, and itТll definitely lower the friction to testing on the latest version of IE, but there are some limitations that should be noted, including the inability to access the local file system. It would be great if that were possible, but VMs can be tricky to deal with, especially from a security perspective.
Of course, there are other free tools that can help you test for IE:
If you want more details, you can check out the Remote.IE announcement on the IE Blog. So now that youТve got this all set up, let us know if itТs helping you spend less time testing.
This article is part of the web dev tech series from Microsoft. WeТre excited to share Microsoft Edge and the new EdgeHTML rendering engine with you. Get free virtual machines or test remotely on your Mac, iOS, Android, or Windows device @ http://dev.modern.ie/ .
WeТre going to walk you through how to install Internet Explorer 7, 8, or 9 in a virtual machine running Windows, directly in Mac OS X Ц for free. This is achieved by using the freely available VirtualBox software from Oracle, and combining that with free Internet Explorer testing virtual machines from Microsoft, the trick is converting these free IE vmТs so that they work flawlessly under OS X (or Linux, technically), and that is all handled automatically with this method.
Notes: the admin password for all of the IE VMs is УPassword1? without the quotes. This has been tested and confirmed to work with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.
Remember that the default Windows admin password is УPassword1?, itТs also the password hint within the VM should you forget it.
ThatТs really all there is to it. These commands are part of the ievsms script from xdissent and it manages the entire download, conversion, and installation procedure, it doesnТt get much easier.
VM Snapshots Circumvent Microsofts 30 Day Limitation
The other great thing about this method is that it circumvents Microsofts 30 day limitation by utilizing snapshots, a feature built into VirtualBox. This preserves the original Windows VM state and allows you to continuously use the IE virtual machine without any time limitation simply by reverting to the original snapshot once the 30 day lock occurs.
To use a snapshot after the 30 day Windows expiration, just open VirtualBox, select the IE VM, and click on the УSnapshotsФ button. From here you can boot from the original snapshot that was created and use IE again for another 30 days. You can do this indefinitely, effectively having a clean IE test environment forever.
What about IE 6?
IE6 is being rapidly abandoned as usage dies, but if you need to use it then you can follow this guide to get IE6 running in Mac OS X. Getting it working isnТt quite as easy as the virtual machine methods above and it utilizes a wine based emulator so your mileage may vary.
Why Use Internet Explorer on a Mac?
This has been a common question, but the primary reasons that Mac users need Internet Explorer are either for web development and web app compatibility purposes, or to access certain web sites or apps that require the use of IE to gain access. If youТre not in either of those groups, there isnТt much benefit to getting IE in Mac OS X, since Safari, Chrome, and Firefox are all excellent browser choices with significantly better performance on the Mac.
