Is IE Tab V2 safe?

Unread post by Daikun » 2013-12-14, 00:07

IE Tab is only compatible for 32-bit browsers, and I'm searching for a 64-bit equivalent. I was directed to IE Tab V2 and I'm wondering if it's safe or not.

I learned my lesson after the whole spyware debacle with IE Tab Plus a few years ago, and I'm weary of trying out spinoffs of the original add-on. :shifty:

Does anyone know if this is safe to use?

IE tab v2 is open-sourced, plus a cursory look at the extension doesn't show any spyware of that sort.
BTW, why do you need it?

I have IE Tab V2 Enhanced as one of my add-ons and I use the 32-bit version of Pale Moon. I use it for one banking site and an internet radio site which is geared toward Internet Explorer. The radio site Delicast won't play music without the add-on in both Firefox and Pale Moon.

I've been using the add-on for the last 5 years and I've never had any security concerns with it.

Thanks, guys. :thumbup:

EDIT: V2 doesn't seem to work, either. :|

Fire IE works, though. :)
