Internet Explorer

Introduced in 1995, Internet Explorer is a web browser produced by Microsoft. It is also known as Explorer, IE, Microsoft Internet Explorer or MSIE. Internet Explorer is the most widely used browser in the world to view information on the World Wide Web (WWW).

This browser didnít get popular until version 3 was released in 1996 which supported CSS, ActiveX controls, Java applets, inline multimedia and the PICS system for content metadata.

Version 8 is currently in development where further improvements will be made to the security of the browser. There will also be more support for CSS 2.1 specifications.

Over the years (particularly in the early releases) Internet Explorer has been subject to harsh criticisms including its security architecture and its lack of support of open standards.
