    Which browser are you using on your Mac? If you're using Safari, you can force it to emulate IE but there are some things you have to do first. Let us know.

    Even with that there are some sites that only work with Windows and IE. I have a site like this for work and even IE running under Crossover does not seem to work. My only option thus far has been to create a virtual machine and run Windows from there.

    ^^Yep, had 2 sites we've been using for 7-8 years that we download project plans from.
    You could log in to both of them from any OS/browser, but the pages that had the project listings and the plans only allowed access from Windows and IE until about a year ago.
    Tried all the spoofing measures with Safari and FF with no luck.

    Can't find it via a search, but pretty sure we've had a couple of other posts related to that same web site.

    Reasons I found searching for solution to this particular site:

    – The developer of that site does not want to be bothered by any non-IE questions, because he is a troglodyte.
    – The site has non-standard code that works in IE, but may have odd appearance in browsers that are designed by the rules.
    They do manage to have all of their sales pages available in every browser though.

    Here are the options - link.
    Incl'g how to have Safari tell the server it is IE.

    And there it gives you a list of browsers other than IE.

    If the pages you need are using ActiveX, not going to get it working without Windows.

    You might go ahead and try Camino though - it's a dead browser now, but can't hurt anything - link.

    What you're seeing there is the same issue I had with those 2 business sites I had to use - could log in and go anywhere on the site except the pages I needed would report unsupported browser.

    Does anyone else find it absolutely ridiculous that ajmarajai's site still lists IE 5 for Mac as a supported browser? That browser was discontinued a decade ago.

    LOL Thanks. Almost got that past me. I had to read it twice to figure out what was different.

    The Active X requirements don't surprise me anymore. The real puzzlers are sites which suggest older version of IE as a minimum and the versions listed were notorious for security issues.

    I'm surprised that website developers still actively develop websites with ActiveX considering both the browser neutral technologies that keep cropping up and the growth of unsupported browsers (anything but IE).
