Microsoft has announced that it is now shipping a version of its Internet Explorer 4.0 Web browser for Solaris, the Unix OS sold by arch rival Sun.
At the same time, the company introduced versions for Windows 3.11, NT 3.51, Unix and Macintosh of its Internet Explorer Administration Kit 4.01, which helps administrators install and configure the browser on networks.
The Solaris version of IE 4.0 follows releases of the browser for Windows 95, Windows NT, Windows 3.1 and the Macintosh. The browser supports HTML 4.0, Dynamic HTML, XML and JDK 1.1. The final version also includes support for Active Channels, missing from an earlier preview release. Microsoft claims its browser is now capable of running on 99.7 percent of all desktops.
The Internet Explorer Administration Kit 4.01a for Windows 3.1, Windows NT 3.51, Unix and the Mac will be distributed freely. Microsoft is also offering an Internet Explorer Resource Kit, a CD-Rom which includes the browser, the Administration Kit, the Internet Client SDK and a number of utilities, accessory programs and sample code. It will resell for $49.99.
