Chapter 8. Taking Control of Web Integration

Chapter 8. Taking Control of Web Integration

Web integration is not the bundling of a web browser with Windows. Instead, what Microsoft calls "integration with the Web" is actually a collection of features and interface elements, all designed to make it appear as though Internet Explorer (IE) is more an extension of Windows than a distinct application. Whether it's truly integrated is purely a matter of semantics; what's important is the effect on the interface you use every day.

This chapter discusses the various components that make up web integration in Windows Me. Perhaps in an effort to allow the OS to be taken more seriously, or perhaps because the integration in Windows 98 wasn't much of a success, Microsoft has somewhat scaled back the web integration in Windows Me. Nonetheless, web integration is there. Fortunately, all of the features therein can be customized or easily disabled, as you prefer.
