    Internet Explorer can I use it with Chromebook Samsung Series 5

    Hello, I just bought a new chromebook Series 5 and i was wanting to use the IE tab web app extension to open pages in Internet Explorer and when I do this using my New Chromebook it says plugin missing and it doesn't view the webpage. I have the same IE Tab on my HP Laptop and the IE Tab works great. Is their a way I can have this work in my new chromebook or Maybe someone can give me another app to use or way to view web pages in Internet Explorer Viewing. Thanks for everyone s help.

    Primericaman,
    I see you got no replies, as I too am in search of such an extension. It seems that IE Tabs on other machines highjack other files already in place on those machines, but not on the Chrome OS. I would like it for only one reason; to get the full version of my Company Outlook Exchange Server Web-access instead of just the "light" version.

    I have been seaching high and low for a solution, but it appears none is available at this time.

    have you found anything?

    I'm guessing you already came across this - HTML5 RDP Client - Free Trial - From Chromebooks or any HTML5-compatible browser

    Opens an RDP session to a server that has this software installed. It's pretty expensive, especially if you only need IE functionality. I really want to pull the trigger on more chromebooks, but without IE (and sites that still are not compatible with Chrome?!?!) I don't see it happening

    History has shown that no matter what MS says their IE is always tightly knitted into the core, it appears you would need more than a simple extension, but a partial core of a windows running ontop the Linux core, running an app, that would have a serious hardware CPU and memory requirements. This is why you will probably not see it ever. Also the security holes that would be exposed in such a kernel layered ontop a kernel would defeat the core requirement SECURITY and the core purpose, vulnerability to hacks as the sandbox approach used by google to eliminate security risk would limit the calls from one kernel to another.
