So ... In my algebra class, we have to do homework online. And this website does not support Mac/Safari -- or ANYTHING ... except IE 6 or higher.

Any suggestions of where I might be able to find a download?

I really don't want to have to install windows and boot to that just to do ONE thing.

Do you have bootcamp and a copy of Windows ?

If so use that

If not Opera may work or Firefox

Unfortunately, no.
And it explicitly states that NO browsers other than IE 6+ are supported.

Would this Firefix add-on work for you?

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/59

It works for me for a certain site that wants IE7.

Yeah - I tried with Safari, IE 5.whatever (the last one they made for Mac), FireFox ... every time it tells me that I have to restart the session in an IE6 browser. And that kronenberg download gets to the part where it's extracting the cab files and then quits unexpectedly -- I got so excited when I found it, but after trying like 5 times I gave up.

I guess I'm going to have to break down and use parallels.

Thanks for the help, guys. Much appreciated. <3

Have you tried enabling the Debug menu in Safari and setting the User Agent to IE7?
