EXPLORER 8

Posted by Ben Thursday, February 3, 2011

Microsoft's current standard is Internet Explorer 8. This web browser outperforms its ancestors with tighter security, private browsing and a clean look. Internet Explorer 8 features extensive parental controls that can be customized to fit each individual in a family. If you have small children and protection is a priority, look no further, this is the browser for your home computer.

Internet Explorer is a good browser with great features. Additional features in version 8 make it even better and definitely worth your consideration.

Features Set:
Microsoft offers a variety of add–ons to customize Internet Explorer 8 and provides the features that will help you make the most of the web. There are four different categories of add–ons: security, time savers, browsers and entertainment. In each category you’ll find a number of downloads, each with a description. Many are free, but some you’ll have to purchase.

Internet Explorer incorporates tabbed browsing. With tabbed browsing, you are able to switch quickly between open websites and you can open more than one website in a single browser window.

Another notable feature is an integrated search window. You can choose to search with your favorite search engine or through other informative websites like Wikipedia, About.com and TopTenREVIEWS. Additionally, IE offers RSS feeds, a synchronize tool and a password manager, so you can further benefit from the array of information on the Internet.

Internet Explorer 8 has a private browsing mode, which stops the browser from adding any sites you visit to your history. InPrivate mode also prevents your computer from picking up temporary Internet files, form data, cookies, usernames, and passwords.

Internet Explorer also now has a smart toolbar, offering search suggestions based on your previous browsing and even visual previews.

Ease of Use:
Internet Explorer 8 is fairly intuitive and easy to use. Making new tabs couldn't be easier. The Internet Explorer interface has the essentials right where you need them, and isn't cluttered.

Security:
Internet Explorer 8 has enhanced security features. It protects against viruses, spyware, pop–ups and phishing schemes. You can download additional security tools from the add–ons list on their homepage. You can also easily clear your personal information and stored cookies.

IE provides security for the entire family and offers extensive parental controls to protect children against web predators and inappropriate content.

Speed & Compatibility:
Internet Explorer is pretty quick. And while not technically the speediest browser, we had no problems quickly browsing, and certainly no issues with compatibility problems. Check out our time trials to see which browsers performed faster than Internet Explorer.

Help/Support:
Internet Explorer comes with first–class help and support. You can find answers to your questions in the online content. The FAQs page has answers to common questions or you can search the database by keyword to find specific information. Furthermore, Microsoft offers personal assistance by phone or email.
