Microsoft is giving web developers a way to run Internet Explorer on nearly every major operating system via a new service called RemoteIE, Simply put, it will let them use the browser on OS X, iOS or Android devices, in addition to Windows, via the Azure RemoteApp, without the need for a typical virtual machine.
The version of IE that's can run on the RemoteIE system is the same one that's available with the recently launched Windows 10 Technical Preview. Microsoft stated:
There are a few caveats with RemoteIE. One is that Azure RemoteApp only works with Windows Server 2012 or later versions of the server OS. Also, each session lasts for only 60 minutes so developers will have to log in again after that time limit is up to continue. However, this should give those website creators a number of new options when developing sites that are designed to work with the latest build of IE.
Is Microsoft doing a better job in adding more developer support for Internet Explorer, including from non-Windows users?
