So I want to get the wife the Transformer Prime for her work, BUT they have a site that they MUST use that is Internet Explorer only. I've looked around a bit, but it seems nothing is available, but most of those threads weren't this specific and they all seemed to be pretty old. So, are there any options that will allow her to get to this site or should I just scrap the whole idea until her company moves into the current technological age?
You can try Firefox with the Phony addon to change its user agent to IE, but that really wont be enough to work if the website required ActiveX and Java.
The best method is to get a Windows tablet when work is a priority. You can get a refurb Acer W500 at Cheetah Deals, which is how I got mine. Before the standard attacks on Windows, this thing last up to 6 hours for me and remains a better companion than my last 5 Honeycomb tablets. with that said, the best tablets are going to be ones that can run both Windows and Android.
Also please don't suggest the OP to use remote access just to use IE. Its bad enough that its IE.
I have the same issue with a site that is very particular about being run from IE and popups allowed, many people have difficulty using the site. I was thinking I might be able to use one of the remote control apps to use IE from a PC sitting somewhere else while I carry the tablet. If anyone has advice on how to set that up or how well those apps work I would appreciate it.
JB58, you can tether a Windows computer to the phone (USB, Bluetooth or wifi) and use IE on the computer. The apps work well. The only problem could be your phone company - some don't allow tethering, and you could be charged a bit (or a lot) for doing it, or you could lose your account (and your number).
