FirefoxView

I have been using Firefox for a good while now and like it. So much, that I even set it as my default browser.

However, that seemed a step to far for MS applications such as the Virtual Server Administration Site, which depend on Internet Explorer to provide a decent user interface. The Firefox IEView extension can come to the rescue here, but in the end I decided to return to Internet Explorer as default browser to accomodate the culprits and reduce the number of clicks on my way to productivity.

That worked well, until I got fed up with the gmail notifier launching the gmail site in IE as well. That is where the FirefoxView extension for IE now seems to come in handy to launch Firefox pages from IE (update: or just switch the browser setting in the gmail notifier...).

Heh, seems a blog is a good way to get job offers...

Anyway you can do the same the other way around. There is an extension for Firefox which enables you to right click a site to open it in IE called "IE view". Not sure it does what you need, but just so you know.
