Each of us uses his favorite web browser to surf the internet: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome to name the three most popular.
Beyond which browser is the best for performance tests, for the opinion of experts and for your own personal judgments, the advice is certainly to keep all three installed.
This is because some websites (like many business applications) only work on Internet Explorer while other sites load well only in Chrome and Firefox while on IE they give problems.
Thanks to some extensions it is possible use two browsers in one, in order to open websites with one, while simulating the display of another.
Precisely, it is possible embed Google Chrome in Internet Explorer and it is possible to put Internet Explorer in Firefox or in Chrome.
To have access to the Internet Explorer view mode without having to open it separately, you can put Internet Explorer inside Google Chrome or Firefox.
Su Firefox, the add-on IE tab no longer exists.
IE tab exists now only for Google Chrome but it is not the same thing because it inserts a frame at the top and does not render as with Firefox.
This addon allows you to view sites with the Internet Explorer rendering engine.
The extension installs as a button next to the Omnibar and allows you to toggle the display of a site between Chrome and IE.
After installation, the icon appears at the top right and, by clicking on it, you go to the Internet Explorer view.
Right-clicking on it takes you to the settings window where you can specify which sites should always open only with the Internet Explorer engine.
Other options allow you to choose whether to open the web page in Internet Explorer mode in another tab or not.
Some websites can be configured to open with IE graphical rendering automatically.
A particular effect of this extension is that even if you remain logged in to your Google account, IE mode allows you to log in with another account temporarily.
Going to IE Mode disconnects from any site that required login and password.
In another post instead we talk about Lunascape, the all-in-one browser with IE, Chrome and Firefox combined.
