Archive | Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer is the default web browser of the Microsoft Windows operating system. The browser, often abbreviated IE or MSIE, was first released as an add-on for Windows 95 and later included natively in all future versions of Windows.

Especially the native integration helped the browser gain market share rapidly which made it the most used browser ever since its release with peak usage shares of more than 90% at one point in time. The releases of Firefox in 2004 and Google Chrome in 2008 saw a decline in market share. Most market research companies see Internet Explorer still in lead but the gap is much closer now, with Chrome and Firefox the browser’s biggest contenders market share wise.

Microsoft recently started to take its Internet Explorer browser serious again after a couple of lackluster releases before that. Internet Explorer 9 and IE10 pave the way for a browser that adheres to standards and closes the gap to Firefox and Google Chrome which are both regarded as the better browsers by many.

We cover Internet Explorer news here and also post guides and tutorials for you which you may find useful. Among them instructions on how you can uninstall Internet Explorer or repair Internet Explorer.
