Internet Explorer, commonly known as IE, was one of the first web browsers to hit the market and, as it was endorsed by Microsoft who were the producer of vast majority of PCs for the consumer market at the time. Due to this, nearly every PC that was sold had Internet Exploer installed on it. IE soon faced competition, but it was able to retake control of the web browser market quickly. Only in recent times has Internet Explorer fallen out of favor, being replaced by more popular choices such as Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.
Internet Explorer still has a lot to offer though, and it goes without saying that when it comes to computers and software, few companies have the expertise that Microsoft does.
Microsoft Internet Explorer has been around for a long time, and the number of software releases is heading into double figures. Having been released as part of the Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Windows 8 Operating Systems, the latest editions have been designed to work seamlessly with these next generation OS. The latest versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer are packed with many features and tools to make the browsing experience more intuitive, faster and more customizable. There is also an option for private browsing (as some may know it, incognito mode), which means that you can be assured that your information is safe and protected while you browse.
There are SmartScreen Filters, Active X capabilities, a list of recommended sites and much more. Internet Explorer was falling behind in the web browser race, but with the latest editions it is fighting back and has its sights set on returning to the top.
