iexplorer: Microsoft Internet Explorer1

Package available in: [8.0] [7.0] [6.0]

This package is heavily based on ies4linux bash script, which allows installing completely behind the scenes! without needing to click on anything to install IE6 - with FlashPlayer 8!

This is possible because Evolt Browser Archive exists. They offer complete IE downloads, so we can skip all that boring installation process. We also download some Microsoft corrections directly from

All these files are compressed using Microsoft CAB format. So we strongly need cabextract utility. We just cabextract the packages, copy the files to the right places and copy the proper wine reg files.

Please, don't use IE to navigate! use a real browser like Firefox.
