Internet Explorer is the world's most popular Web browser. Security, ease of use, and improvements in RSS, CSS, and Ajax support are Microsoft's priorities for Internet Explorer. This version of IE runs on the 64-bit version of Windows 7.
The latest version of the browser includes support for:
- Accelerators - which allow supported web applications to be invoked without explicitly navigating to them.
- WebSlices - which allows portions of page to be subscribed to and monitored from a redesigned Favorites Bar.
- InPrivate privacy features.
- SmartScreen phishing filter.
* Fast: Internet Explorer is all-around fast. Designed to take full advantage of your PC’s hardware through Windows, Internet Explorer delivers graphically rich and immersive experiences that are as fast and responsive as native applications installed on your PC.
* Clean: Internet Explorer puts the focus on the Web sites you love with a clean look and increased viewing area that makes your Web sites shine. Intuitive and seamless integration with Windows 7 provides one-click access to Web applications pinned directly to your Taskbar.
* Trusted: Internet Explorer is the trusted way to the Web because it has a robust set of built-in security, privacy and reliability technologies that keep you safer and your browsing experience uninterrupted.
* Interoperable: Support for HTML5 and modern Web standards architected to take advantage of the GPU means that the same mark-up not only works across the Web, but runs faster and delivers a richer experience through Windows and Internet Explorer.
