Internet Explorer for Mac – IE6, IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10 and IE11

Internet Explorer for Mac

Are you looking to install Internet Explorer for Mac? Today I discovered a nice tool on Github which installs free Windows virtual machines using VirtualBox on OS X. The only reason I’d use these virtual machines is to have different versions of Internet Explorer browsers running side by side for testing purposes.

So here’s what you need to do to install Internet Explorer for Mac:
1. Download VirtualBox if you don’t have it already.
2. Choose what version of Internet Explorer to install. Then type the following commands in your terminal window:
Install ALL versions of Internet Explorer: IE 6, IE 7, IE 8, IE 9, IE 10 and IE 11

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/xdissent/ievms/master/ievms.sh | bash

Install Internet Explorer 7 Only

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/xdissent/ievms/master/ievms.sh | IEVMS_VERSIONS="7" bash

Install Internet Explorer 8 Only

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/xdissent/ievms/master/ievms.sh | IEVMS_VERSIONS="8" bash

Install Internet Explorer 9 Only

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/xdissent/ievms/master/ievms.sh | IEVMS_VERSIONS="9" bash

3. Open VirtualBox and launch your virtual machine. You will be prompted to type in account password, which is “Password1”. The password is also in the “Passowd hint” field if you forget it.

 

UPDATE: 13/Apr/2013
Internet Explorer for Mac just got better.  Now, you can install IE10 on Windows 8.

Install Internet Explorer 10 Only

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/xdissent/ievms/master/ievms.sh | IEVMS_VERSIONS="10" bash

UPDATE: Aug 2014
The links have been updated to raw.githubusercontent.com. All links above should work properly again.

Download Internet Explorer 11 Only

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/xdissent/ievms/master/ievms.sh | IEVMS_VERSIONS="11" bash
