Fire-IE is another ietab-like extension. It embeds the IE engine to handle IE-only websites. You could change the browser engine from Firefox to IE by a simple click.

Moreover, you can write auto-switch rules so that Fire-IE will automatically switch to IE engine when you visit certain sites. Like Adblock Plus, you can also subscribe to existing rule lists. We currently maintain an auto-switch rule list for Chinese sites.

When you switch to the IE engine, cookies will be synchronized so that you do not need to relogin. Most of the shortcut keys of Firefox will be available under the IE engine as well. For example you could use "Ctrl + +" and "Ctrl + -" to zoom in and out, "Ctrl + F" to search inside the document and so on.

It also supports mouse gestures for the IE engine with the FireGuestures or All-in-One Gestures extension installed.

Adblock Plus is supported now. You will no longer be annoyed by ads in the IE engine.

Internet Explorer Data Leakage

<!-- blog post -->

On the 1st of October, 2012, we disclosed to Microsoft the following security vulnerability in Internet Explorer, versions 6–10, which allows your mouse cursor to be tracked anywhere on the screen—even if the Internet Explorer window is minimised. The vulnerability is particularly troubling because it compromises the security of virtual keyboards and virtual keypads.

The motivation for using a virtual keyboard is typically that it reduces the chance of a keylogger recording one’s keypresses and thereby compromising one’s passwords or credit card details. (c.f. bit.ly/YnNBYE; bit.ly/VpapWf)

Whilst the Microsoft Security Research Center has acknowledged the vulnerability in Internet Explorer, they have also stated that there are no immediate plans to patch this vulnerability in existing versions of the browser. It is important for users of Internet Explorer to be made aware of this vulnerability and its implications.

The vulnerability is already being exploited by at least two display ad analytics companies across billions of page impressions per month.
