IEs4Linux is a free and open source script that allows a user to run Internet Explorer (IE) on Wine (typically in a Linux configuration). It is possible to install Internet Explorer versions 5, 5.5 and 6; along with partial functionality of IE7 (the layout engine is loaded into the IE6 interface, which works well enough to demonstrate how the target page looks in IE7).

This application is oriented towards web developers: it allows users of non-Windows operating systems to view the their web pages in a similar manner to how they look on Windows. As well, since the primary goal is to make Internet Explorer work on systems besides Windows (using Wine), it could be less likely to have issues with viruses or malware targeting Windows.
