If you’re security-conscious, you always try use Firefox for anything browser-related, right? There are times, however, when you need to test something you’re building, e.g., web application, in Internet Explorer.
IE Tab is basically a plugin (now called an Add-on) that embeds Internet Explorer’s engine in a Mozilla/Firefox tab. Pretty cool, huh?
Simply install it like you normally install other plugins, and once installed, you can switch back-and-forth from IE to Firefox with a click of a status bar button.
Here’s a screenshot:
Having the IE Tab also allows you to run Windows Updates within Firefox! The only unfortunate thing is it’s a Windows-only plugin.
So, give it a go and enjoy the looks from the faces of your coworkers, not to mention the increase in your productivity. =0)
