Autodesk Senior Manager of Application Services, Paul Gatty, alerted me to what he referred to as "the coolest Firefox extension ever." It's called IE Tab. From within the Firefox browser, IE Tab lets you render whatever pages you want using the Internet Explorer rendering engine. You just specify the Internet-Explorer-specific web sites you want to use the IE rendering engine for, and Firefox will render them correctly. This is especially usefully for those of you that have Firefox set as your default browser. Before IE Tab, every time you clicked on a Buzzsaw link embedded in an email, it would open Firefox, and you would get an unsupported browser error. With IE Tab, you simply specify:
as an URL within IE Tab, and you are good to go. You can also switch rendering engines on the fly whenever you hit a page that isn't compatible with Firefox.
DWF Technical Evangelist, Brian Pene, also noted that the IE Tab also supports viewing of DWF files with the free Autodesk DWF Viewer. To make Firefox work with every DWF link you click from Firefox, simply go to the IE Tab settings and under the sites filter for the URL line type *.dwf and then click ADD. This will make the IE Tab the default for any links to DWF files.
Firefox users can download IE Tab from:
Life just got a little easier for Buzzsaw and DWF users who are also Firefox users.
