If you still need IE for Mac, download this modified version for Lion and Mountain Lion:

http://machow2.com/download-internet-explorer-for-mac/

It works on the latest Macs including all Intel Macs. It installs instantly without having to setup a virtual machine so anyone should be able to install it easily.

What's nuts is that you're even trying to download this in the first place. If you need an OS 9 web browser go for Classilla.

How odd. The macupdate.com RSS feed's just shown there's a new version of Internet Explorer, but coming to this page shows that there isn't.

Hopefully all the Microsoft folks are busy getting macro support back into Office :)

Why use this at all? You may be under the impression that by viewing sites using ie5mac, you're viewing them as windows IE viewers are. You're not. IE for windows (ALL versions) uses a completely different rendering engine called Trident....whereas ie5mac (and that alone) uses Tasman. It's about as similar to IE windows as Firefox is to Safari.
So remember, if you're coding a website with ie5mac, you are only catering for ie5 mac users alone and no-one else....IE windows users (even ie 5 win) are completely different browsers.

Now that that's sorted, on to the browser itself. In a few words ----- HOPELESSLY BROKEN. At the time, it was quite advanced with CSS, but it's time has passed. Not even M$ themselves support it anymore and it wasn't used anywhere else except in "MSN for OSX" which has also been discontinued long long ago (not to be confused with Messenger for OSX - a different program).
Not only that but it has to be the WORST browser in the world when it comes to JavaScript compliance. I've lost count of the number of internet sites this PoS cannot load.
In fact, the only way to code a webpage for IE win compatibility is to test it on a windows machine itself (or using something like parallels).....there is NOTHING on the mac currently that uses the Trident layout engine....including this junk.

It's time to move on people......why use a program that effectively has it's own proprietary engine not used anywhere else, that virtually no-one uses for "proper" internet surfing (maybe 0.001% of all internet traffic at most at a guess?) and further, one that the creators themselves have stopped supporting...?.................

P.S. I have yet to come across a site that doesn't work with one of either Safari/Opera/Firefox.....
......but maybe that's just me :)

I just wanted to verify...the version of IE for OS X I have is 5.2.3 (5815.1)...is this the last rev they created?

Personally, I have always hated IE...Safari and Firefox are infinitely better (tho I wish Firefox had the speed Safari does...it has far more functionality than Safari)...yet some websites *STILL* insist on IE being used, while I generally immediately close those sites, there is one I can not live without ( http://www.alibaba.com/ ) and only one function of it requires the use of IE :(

So if anyone could let me know what their Internet Explorer > About Internet Explorer window shows as the version, I would be most grateful :)

Don't support that app which does not comply to well known standards.

Since 2003 no update, no fix for security issues ! Nothing... Revealing attitude.

Without respecting standards and extending them with their own useless stuff, they makes your life a nightmare. Complain to webmasters who are making web sites only compatible with M$ IE.

Support Open Source and respect Standards.

Don't be a sheep for once.
Act, as a customer, you have the power to change things !

Quantity does not mean Quality.

Uh, MSIE is dead, dead, dead. DEAD. MS no longer even provides it for downloading. They announced 'way back in June, 2003, that they were no longer developing it. They cut off support Dec 31, 2005 and took it off their site as of Jan 31, 2006.

I have to agree with you. To put it bluntly, IE 5.2.3 is a heap of cow dung. The only time I use it is when the web site I'm trying to get into is also a heap of cow dung. And that's only when I desperately need to read the page. If I don't I just hit command-w, muttering unprintable imprecations on the web master. :-)

I've found IE very problematic contastantly quites because of errors and is very unstable!

As others have mentioned it seems incompatable with hotmail due to the changes they have made. However I have managed to access my hotmail still, but only using Instant messenger or entourage.

"i cant open my internet explorer"

Microsoft has stopped any further development of the Internet Explorer for Mac OS X as of beginning 2004. The final release 5.2.3 dates from 2003-06-16.

This application has thus to be considered both very out-of-date and DANGEROUS as security issues are neither tracked nor resolved anymore. In other words:

DON'T USE INTERNET EXPLORER ANYMORE!

Use Safari, Camino, Mozilla, OmniWeb or Opera instead.
