Image from store IE Tab
Description from store Top 10 Chrome extension since 2009! Now with MAC & CHROMEBOOK support!! IE Tab exactly emulates IE by using the IE rendering engine directly within Chrome. This will enable you to use ActiveX controls and test your web pages with different versions of IE (IE6, IE7, IE8, or IE9). -- FEATURES -- * Create a list of URLs that will automatically open in IE Tab * Group Policy support for enterprise deployments * Securely use the old IE rendering engine * Edit Sharepoint documents instead of opening read-only * Use Java, Silverlight, and ActiveX in Chrome seamlessly -- THE DEVELOPER -- IE Tab is brought to you by Blackfish Software, LLC, a software development and consulting company based in Kirkland, WA, USA. -- FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS -- 1. Why do I have to install ietabhelper.exe? IE Tab uses the Internet Explorer rendering engine. This rendering engine can't be directly accessed from a Chrome extension, so we need a helper process to talk between the Chrome extension and the rendering engine. 2. Did IE Tab always require this extra program? No. Chrome used to support a technology called NPAPI (the Netscape Plugin API) which allowed extensions to access local computer resources. IE Tab used to use that functionality to access the Internet Explorer rendering engine. But Chrome removed NPAPI support, so we were forced to implement a new solution, and that solution requires a separate helper executable. From a technical standpoint, the only real change is that our code moved from an NPAPI .DLL file to a helper .EXE file. 3. Is the IE Tab Helper application safe? Absolutely! IE Tab has always used native code, and we have always treated the security of our 2+ million users very seriously. So you can rest assured that this helper executable is secure and trustworthy. 4. I'm an enterprise customer, how do I deploy the IE Tab Helper automatically? We have enterprise deployment options, please contact us at [email protected] for details.

  • (2020-06-27) Lawrence Galitz: This is an excellent tool, and works seemlessly for me within Chrome on Windows 10. It's ideal if you need to run legacy websites with Flash or Silverlight, and works like a dream. Great support too.

  • (2020-06-27) tosl scrubber: What's not known when installing this extension is that there is an executable file to be downloaded and installed with this extension. Very intrusive into the OS outside of the browser. Very misleading.

  • (2014-11-25, v: Holli R: Duplicate Tab in IE
    It would be great if there was an option in the tab context menu to reopen that tab but in IE. When I want to open a page in IE, it is generally because I am having issues with the page in Chrome and want to see if it is browser related. I don't need this frequently enough that I want to leave the extension button showing in my browser toolbar, but I can't find a way to easily reopen my current page in IE without the button.

    IE Tab would help Mac & LInux users access IE only websites.

  • (2014-11-19, v: Jeremy Brooks: IE Tab won't load any pages
    Starting today, I can't get IE Tab to go to any website. The page is blank. The website works fine in chrome but IE Tab does nothing at all. Clicking enter or pressing the go arrow does nothing.
