What is the meaning of Internet Explorer

A Web browser that made its debut in 1995 as Microsoft’s response to Netscape, one of the first graphical-based Web browsers and, at the time, the dominant browser in use with control of over 90percent of the market.

Initially called Microsoft Internet Explorer (MSIE), Internet Explorer (IE) has long held the title of most popular browser in use, despite strong competition from the likes of Mozilla Firefox, Apple’s Safari, Opera and Google Chrome.

As with most modern browsers, Internet Explorer supports Java, JavaScript, ActiveX, RSS, CSS and Ajax, while also offering features like tabbed browsing, private browsing, and built-in malware and phishing protection.

The latest official release, Internet Explorer 8 (IE8), made its debut in March of 2009, and the next major release, Internet Explorer 9, is currently in development.IE9 is expected to offer a faster Javascript engine called Chakra, hardware accelerated rendering using Direct2D and DirectWrite, and extensive support for CSS3 and HTML5.
