Chapter 33. Exploring the Web with Internet Explorer

IN THIS CHAPTER

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.

Robert Louis Stevenson

You saw in Chapter 5, “Web Integration and the Active Desktop,” that Windows 98's most famous (and, in some circles at least, most controversial) feature is the marriage between the Internet Explorer browser and the Windows interface. This “Web integration” enables you to navigate your local drives using more or less the same methods you use to navigate the World Wide Web.

However, an arm-in-arm relationship with Windows isn't the only trick that Internet Explorer has up its digital sleeve. The 4.x version of Microsoft's browser, released originally in August 1997, boasts many new features, including support for channels, the capability of setting up Web site subscriptions, support for dynamic HTML, enhanced security, improved history and search features, many new customization options, and numerous user interface improvements.

This chapter shows you how to use Internet Explorer to traverse the highways and byways of the World Wide Web. Besides extensive coverage of all the new features, I also show you how to navigate links, deal with files and multimedia, and set up Internet Explorer to your liking.
