11.1. Internet Explorer 6

Internet Explorer (or IE, as it's often abbreviated) is the most famous Web browser on earth, thanks to several years of Justice-department scrutiny and newspaper headlines. The initial release of Windows XP comes with IE version 6, which you can open in a number of ways:

  • Choosing its name from the Start menu (either the left column or the All Programs menu).

  • Clicking its shortcut on the Quick Launch toolbar.

  • Choosing a Web site's name from your Start→Favorites menu (that is, if you've put favorites there).

  • Typing a Web address— sometimes called its URL (Uniform Resource Locator) into a window's Address bar. A Web page URL usually begins with the prefix http://, but you can leave that part off when typing into the Address bar.

  • Clicking a blue, underlined link on a Windows Help screen.
