    Don't use it ever.. IE is just plain trash, don't listen to people who say this is a good.

    IE is horrible!. Doesn't work with new MacBooks Pro or Air. I wouldn't bother with it. Go for Chrome or Firefox. Pros: Nothing. at all. Cons: Missing? Where?

    Not compatible with new Macs. Internet Explorer used to be pretty good browser for Windows. In my opinion Mac users do not need it. Default OS X browser is almost perfect. If you are looking for the alternative to Safari - Google Chrome may be a good choice. I have downloaded IE just to make sure that it is useless. It did not work on my Mac. It is not compatible with Intel based machine so it can More

    I am a mac user with a genuine need for internet explorer........... I'm from the UK... a bank I use in China requires internet explorer ONLY as the internet browser for online banking. This means I have to use someone elses PC to do my online banking. This is not a nostalgic value.... this is a good reason why mac users might *NEED* internet explorer for mac.

    Trickery and Deceit. This is some kind of scam. This is not internet explorer as advertised. It is a program called iExplorer for pulling music files from your iDevice. Softonic you should end this trickery and deceit. Pros: not a thing. Cons: This is a lie. It is not Internet Explorer

    So many downloads!. The most downloaded browser last month for the Mac. Truly amazing and you have to download it to see the magic happen. See why tens of thousands of users have chosen this legacy browser and experience the excitement now! Pros: downloads. Cons: more downloads

    DON'T USE THIS ON A MAC!!. This is really bad. Downloaded it to use sharepoint on a mac. It crapped up from the first second.

    Awful in every way. Old app, designed for old powerpc processors. It has always been an awful, buggy, insecure, non user-friendly web browser. I only need it to test and see if my website is compatible with it. Pros: Works on websites that have tools that are only compatible with it. Cons: Outdated Non user-friendly Slow Buggy

    Not compatible with Lion. This application works on my computer with snow leopard but will not work on lion. I get an error message that lion will not run applications associated with powerpc. Pros: nothing. Cons: doesn't work

    Easy to Understand.... .. why it's Abandonware. I thought needed to use IE to access the Australian Business Register website, because it only works with IE or Netscape - It simply won't work with any other browser and insists you use one of those browsers. How stone-aged of them. Totally forgot I had Parrallels installed and had the option of running Windows 7 inside OSX... Haven't needed to boot More

    Microsoft. Does Microsoft support anything they make beyond corporate applications? No wonder everyone is leaving Windows for Mac. Cons: Another piece of Microsoft junk

    Need Help!. Hey! I'm from Mexico and I'm trying to apply for a short curse in finances subsidized by a Mexican association by Harvard Manage Mentor PLUS. The whole curse runs on IE but my interphase is MAC. Any suggestions?

    Administrative enforcement. ok on a need to use basis, but not more than that <a href="http://www.networkhosting.dk/">IT Outsourcing</a> Pros: makes my helpdesk system work. Only thing i use it for. Cons: where to start :( Slow, bad csc translation etc. etc.

    ie4mac.com runs Internet Explorer 6,7,8, not just the old IE 5. As the editor stated correctly, Microsoft ended support for Internet Explorer for Mac on December 31st, 2005. It is really really old. I am a web designer and need Internet Explorer 7, 8 and sometimes also 6. At ie4mac.com one can use the original, unmodified Windows Internet Explorer, right on a Mac: http://ie4mac.com/en/

    IE 5.2.3. To me, i don't like it is garbage. Don't show nothing only words, not pictures, I unistalled from my mac. Pros: Nothing. Cons: All

    Doesn't work with Firefox 3.5. Seems this extension is just as outdated as the IE itself. Duh. I tried to find a possibility to use a certain CMS which only accepts IE, but it seems I will have to fiddle around with that on some PC.

    Well... this.... sucks!. Not only does it suck, is unstable, cost money (:O), and insecure, but it's butt ugly! Seriously! It looks like a windows 95 wannabe! I wouldn't recommend it to anyone! Pros: None. Cons: Everything

    Mac stupidity. its blatant stupidity by mac to make it so hard for the mac to view or use explorer as a tool. website html has to work for this browser because steve jobs got his mac software policy so badly wrong 20 years ago thats why microsoft exists, had he not messed that job up we would have no microsoft and no exploer issues to compound the error by making macs so fragile when it comes to m More

    "Just works". It actually worked pretty well for me. It is multi-lingual so you should fix the description. The installation took me.. 2 minutes? man, its just 16mb, what's wrong with keeping it there? you can move it to wherever you please outside the "applications folder", I'm actually thinking on making a "nostalgic" folder with all these obsolte but meaningf More

    @Compelled to use Internet Explorer. If you're using Firefox, try the IE Explorer extension instead - it might work! http://ie-tab-extension.en.softonic.com/ Pros: - Cons: -

    I am compelled to use Internet Explorer. I have a situation whereby my bank's interent site will only run on Internet Explorer as will my company's intra web sites. So I have no alternative but to load Internet Explorer on my new Imac

    ADVICE!. If you are using any browser other than IE and you have a website online, do not D/L IE for MAC. First, you don't want anything that might potentially crash your machine (and that is hard to do on a mac). If you are programming sites on a MAC, save yourself some grief. Buy a used PC or PC Laptop and use it to run IE. Trust me (and why should you?) IE on a PC behaves differently than IE on More

    To: Web Designers/ Developers. is there anyway to test websites using newer versions of IE on a mac? As far as this article goes, Don't think that the mac version of IE behaved any different from the PC's. The internet would crash and lock up my computer all the time

    Gotta do it. I work in a public school system with PC's and a lot of our software will only run properly in Explorer. So I am forced to have it on my Mac! Nostalgia- not a bit. Necessity.

    Win 7 and Ie 8 Kicking mac's but lately. Windows has finally done it! If you always felt like a goofy "Howard Dean" as you used Mac and kinda feel like vomiting when you watch all the Mac tards try to one up each other with their elitist ways. Rest assured other than the Adobe suite windows 7 and IE 8 have simply beat Mac and safari. The regular folk non liberal Americans still l More
