Colin's Weekly Tip: Firefox Doubles as Internet Explorer
Websites sometimes look different depending on the browser that's used. If you're a FireFox 1.5 user who wants to see how a site looks in Internet Explorer 7 there is no need to open up a new browser, just download and install the IE extension which allows you to view pages through the eyes of IE.
To enable this feature, first go to Tools menu then select the Extensions option. From there click on the Get More Extensions link, that will open up a new Window, select the IE Tab extension. A box might prompt you about the option being unsigned, but that's okay. Wait for the Install button to light up then click it. Once that's done, close down all your FireFox browsers so the extension fully installs.
Now whenever you want to view a page as Internet Explorer sees it within little old Firefox, simply click the FireFox icon on the bottom right hand corner of the FireFox browser window and it will load up the page in IE mode. Please note that while you're viewing pages in Internet Explorer mode, you'll be vulnerable to all of Explorer's holes and bugs. To fix those run Windows Update, but that'ss another tip...
