Microsoft Internet Explorer

If you are looking for Microsoft Internet Explorer, you have come to the right place. We explain what Microsoft Internet Explorer is and point you to the official download.

What is Microsoft Internet Explorer?

Internet Explorer is the leading web browser in the world, with a lion’s share of 39% in usage around the globe (followed by Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, respectively). According to most analysts, the usage of Internet Explorer is closely correlated with the adoption of Windows as the dominant operating system since the first Internet Explorer was packaged along Windows 95. At its peak, it occupied about 95% of global market share in the early years of the 21st century (specifically around 2002 and 2003) with Internet Explorer 6, but its share has been in a slow but steady decay with the appearance of competing browsers, most notably Firefox and Chrome.

Often criticized among tech expert circles and considered inferior to most modern and free browsers, such as those cited above, Internet Explorer or IE has been at the forefront of modern web development and web standards for the past two decades, and has continued doing so. Microsoft has also entered partnerships with the developers of other browsers to facilitate the adoption of universal web standards. However, it still lags behind the competition in features and most notably security, although the newer versions are trying to make up for it.
