Actually, let me modify that a bit.  IE could make use of ActiveX controls if you had a COM+ library for your Unix system.  Digital (now part of Compaq) had one working at one time, but I don't think it was ever released.  And even if it was released, it would have been for True64, and IE only runs on Solaris (aside from Win* and Mac), so that wouldn't help anyway.
