Chapter 5. Exploring the Internet > Browsing with MSN Explorer

Browsing with MSN Explorer

MSN Explorer is Internet software you can use to browse the Web, send e-mail and instant messages to friends, listen to music, watch videos, and manage finances online. MSN Explorer combines Microsoft's Internet software technologies, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Microsoft Windows Media Player, and MSN Messenger Service, with its leading web services, such as Hotmail and CNBC Money. You don't have to be an MSN member to use MSN Explorer, but you do need to have a Microsoft .NET Passport, which you can obtain when you associate an existing e-mail address with a User Account using the .NET Passport Wizard, or you can sign up for a free Hotmail or MSN e-mail account during the setup process. With MSN Explorer you can search the web and access web sites as in Internet Explorer.
