What is IE Tab?
IE Tab is a Chrome extension that replicates the Internet Explorer environment, facilitating access to features like Java, Silverlight, ActiveX and Sharepoint directly in Chrome. Through different versions of IE (IE7 - IE11), fully supported in Windows 11 and beyond, IE Tab maintains a secure hold on the old IE rendering engine for secure use. Its deployment options and support for URL and enterprise-specific grouping policies also enhance its utility.
IE Tab exactly emulates Internet Explorer, and enables you to load your web pages with different versions of IE (IE7 - IE11)
FULLY SUPPORTED IN WINDOWS 11 AND AFTER INTERNET EXPLORER IS REMOVED IN FEBRUARY 2023.
Please note that IE Tab for Windows does require the use of a separate executable, ietabhelper.exe. You can read more about that in the FAQ below.
