Is the IIM Browser actually IE under the covers? How close is it?

I'm writing a regression test suite for our switch which has an embedded web server for configuring our switch. I'm testing with the scripting interface, so I'm using the IIM Browser.

If I'm testing with the IIM Browser, how valid is that for my goal of making sure it runs in IE (version 6 or greater). I haven't found any difference so far.

I saw, in another post, that you're working on running the plugin from the scripting interface. Is that going to be in 5.0?

The IIM browser uses IE functions internally, so it simulates IE 100%. In other words, all results you get in IIM are valid for IE.

Yes (but the currently available V5.0 Beta does not have this feature yet).
