Why is internet explorer 8 not in the install list on playon ?

I tried to install and run it on wine but it froze up and would not run
but i Could run ie7 but it will not download files .........

So when will i be able to install ie8 on playon?

I would figure that you would need to wait for wine to support IE8 first, wine barely runs IE7 let alone 8.

take a look at the Wine appdb for details of how well versions of IE run currently:

If you're looking for a general purpose browser, your best bet is to use something that runs natively, like firefox, chrome, opera, etc. IE should only be used on wine if a website absolutely refuses to work on any other browser (I have seen a few of those). Also if you like the appearance of IE, firefox has a lot of theme/IE appearance mimicking plugins you can try.
