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.

  • (2020-01-24) Jon Frere: I needed an ActiveX plugin and used to have to run IE to use it. This extension works perfectly in Chrome so very useful, and no need for IE now.
  • (2020-01-24) Abduaziz Xafizov: скачал ,работало на следующий день включил не работает,почему не знаю.
  • (2020-01-22) Alessandro Medos: Davvero utile, soprattutto in ambito aziendale, Internet Explorer è ancora "ingombrante" e alcune procedure non sono compatibili con Chrome, Edge, e comunque i browser Chromium based. Sicuramente aiuta nei periodo di transizione come questi, e funziona davvero bene. cinque stelle meritatissime.
  • (2020-01-22) Leandro A. Mancebo: MUY BUENA!!! Estaba complicado ya que tenía que utilizar un ambiente de educación virtual que corría con (atención): SILVERLIGHT (sí, en 2020). Para colmo de males, voy sobre Ubuntu, por lo que los parches que me ofrecían eran sólo para Windows. El Plugin me salvó, y tengo funcionalidad total para cursar. Gracias che!!!

  • (2020-01-17) IE Tab Support: - Please contact us at [email protected] if you need help, we can't help you from here!
  • (2020-01-16) Sam Boylett: It works in the loosest sense of the word, but it's too slow to actually be useful. Browserstack is actually faster...
  • (2020-01-16) Bo Ingemann: super add-on
  • (2020-01-15) Jonathan Tinsman: Doesn't go directly to the site but through some third party server. I can't hit localhost nor any site behind the firewall (despite me being inside the network). Also cannot inspect the elements on the webpage. This completely defeats the reason i needed to see on IE in the first place. For me and my purposes, useless. For others it may be useful (although I cannot imagine why someone would need IE inside Chrome other than to develop)
  • (2020-01-14) Neel Kirtikar: very good
  • (2020-01-13) Baka Hitsuji: It's good, for when it works, but then just stops working by itself, shows up as IT Tab Version: Unknown randomly, and has to be reinstalled. I've even donated before it got the "licensing" requirements, which is what I think is breaking it, either that or the Chrome sync between devices. Doesn't happen on just one computer either, affects all PCs with my account. Latest Chrome, just one account registered on Chrome.

  • (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.
  • (2014-11-24, v: Vincent Pho: jsp
  • (2014-11-21, v: Aaron Garcia: Allow on Mac & Linux
    IE Tab would help Mac & LInux users access IE only websites.
  • (2014-11-20, v: 尹湘中: 没有中文!
  • (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.

  • (2014-11-10, v: Pete H: extra step
    There is nothing (no room below flashing arrow to click install - flashing arrow is at the bottom of the page with nothing vieable below it...

    Does not work for Andriod
  • (2014-11-07, v: certificado
  • (2014-11-03, v: Matti Thorley-Symes: Mac Version
    Is there any update on if and when this will be available for Mac? It would be a great tool for web dev on my Mac!
