For one of the ActiveX sites I regularly have to visit (a stupid thing
which calls itself a "Helpdesk Web Application", but is in fact nothing
more than a thin ActiveX wrapper around a very bogusly designed problem
report database), I usually connect to a Windows machine through rdesktop.

I'm not sure if there is a *good* way to run IE on FreeBSD, but if you
do have a Windows machine around, the net/rdesktop port is a very cool
utility to have around :)
