Internet Explorer 6.0 for Mac

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of Internet Explorer 6.0 for Mac? I know it is not supported by Microsoft anymore, but I need a copy to test our company's application

Also, if a company requires IE 6 for their application, they mean IE 6 for Win, not Mac. IE is not the same cross-platform, so even having IE 5 for the Mac would very likely not work. You need to install Virtual PC if you're running a PPC Mac. There's some intel Mac options, but they're all beta at this point.

We run software that requies IE6 Windows but also works on Safari and Firefox for the Mac. All it takes is not using Microsoft's proprietary nonsense.

Microsoft has officially discontinued development of Internet Explorer for Mac. They don't even make Explorer 5 available for download anymore from the Microsoft website:

http://www.microsoft.com/mac/product...ternetexplorer

Microsoft recommends users use Safari instead.

There is an extension for Firefox and Safari out on the web called "User Agent Switcher" that tells websites that you're running Explorer 6 for XP, but I don't know if that will help you or not.

For Firefox: http://chrispederick.com/work/useragentswitcher/

Not sure where the Safari version is, but I know it's out there somewhere.
