No it isn't. Install wine and I believe it comes with it.

Hello.

Why install Something from Microsoft,for them so much viruses,with wine some viruses of windows can cause problems for used windows program.

Linux have good browsers in backages and no viruses, there are browser(FireFox) when you install it.

You don't need nothing like IE.

It is possible through Wine yes, but only up to version 8 through winetricks. It runs quite smooth in Wine without problems, could probly install later versions as well, i have only tried IE8.
