What does not
â€œInternet Explorer couldnâ€™t download %wsâ€
It has also crashed a few times.
What was not tested
I have only tested this briefly to test the layout of a website. I was able to access all the preferences and change settings. I have not tried to install the web developer tools.
See comments below for how I installed it, I did try just installing it on its own first and that didn't seem to work.

1. Copy and paste the following into a terminal:

2. Run winetricks -q urlmon mshtml
This may work, it may not. Try winetricks.
