How to use Chrome on a site requiring IE

January 25, 2013 in Chrome

So, you’ve settled on Chrome as your default browser and moved all your bookmarks over. Pleased as punch you find yourself at a site you can’t access properly because the site’s authors made it an Internet Explorer site and Chrome won’t work properly on it. Ohhh the inhumanity of it! What do you do?

Actually the problem is easily solved through Chrome’s plugin’s. Just follow these steps.

Click the settings button on the right side of Chrome’s menubar

Now click the Settings item on the drop down menu

Now you’re on the Chrome Web Store (Congratulations for hanging in this long continue on below)

Now we need to do a search, type IE into the search box, it has “Search Apps” in light grey until you type inside it. Press enter and then when the results show up click the Extensions button to filter the results for what we want. Finally you’ll see something called “IE Tab Multi (Enhance)” as pictured below

Now you want to click the add to chrome button on the right

Once you click Add to Chrome a pop up dialog box asking you to confirm the new extension will appear. You’ll need to click the Add button

Finally after Chrome finishes installing the extension it will open the options page where you can set the options you want. I’ve added some red arrows for you to pay attention in the options page.

Congratulations, if you got this far you now have a Chrome browser that can act just like IE on sites that demand IE be used.

It turns out there was a cross site scripting issue with the last version of the software and so it was critical to update it again. That was done today (January 3rd, 2011).
