How can Internet Explorer 5 be emulated in 2020?



  • Details

    One of our customers uses a rather old software solution, and this is still based (yes, it's unbelievable!) on Internet Explorer 5, and the customer still uses IE 11 in compatibility mode.

    We are currently using a virtual environment to test IE 5, but only manually, not automated.

    I do not want to ask for frameworks, but would be absolutely grateful for any other conceivable solution!

    Compatibility mode does not provide a solution to problems that can only be emulated in IE 5. So is it absolutely impossible to test this automatically nowadays?

    Question Is there a solution, a procedure that allows testing IE 5 from today's point of view?



  • Why test in IE5 if the customer isn't using it?

    It doesn't sound like they actually want IE5 support. They just want it to work. Test in IE11 Compatibility mode, as that's what they use.
