Currently, Internet Explorer is not made for the Mac, but there are still some sites that require and/or prefer it. Ed has written in past issues of Kibbles (#582) about alternate ways to view sites that only render using Internet Explorer, since this seems to be a popular topic.

With Safari 3 (I’m on 3.1.2), there’s another way. Upon following a tip from Nixtechnica, I tried the following settings:

1. Open Preferences in Safari
2. Under the Advanced tab, check “Show Develop menu in menu bar”
3. Click the Develop menu in the Safari menu bar, and choose Develop > User Agent > Internet Explorer 7.0
4. Try using the IE-compatible website

I tried this using our Health Care website (which says it “works best” on Internet Explorer), and it logged me in perfectly.

Let me know if there are sites you know of that require/prefer IE. AND, definitely let us know if this tip did the trick!
