Browsing SharePoint Sites in Firefox With IE Tab

I don’t hate Internet Explorer. I do hate version 6, but 7 was better, and 8 looks blockbuster. But due to the incredible extensions available in Firefox I’m a big fan. The problem is that browsing SharePoint sites in something other than Internet Explorer proves to be a less than perfect experience.

With the IE Tab Firefox extension we can browse SharePoint sites inside the Firefox interface on demand without having to open IE. Here is a short screencast on how to do it.

    Interesting solution! Thanks for the tip — too bad it still requires the IE rendering engine, because I would love to see better integration for non-Windows platforms into SharePoint.

    @Chris: Thanks for stopping by.  I agree, but it’s part-n-parcel with Windows web apps.
