Chapter 18. Exploring the Web with Internet Explorer

Chapter 18. Exploring the Web with Internet Explorer

In This Chapter

As I write this, Internet Explorer is by far the most dominant web browser with, depending on which source you use, anywhere from 70% to 75% of the market. (This is down about 20% since the release of the Firefox browser in late 2004.) And because most computer-savvy people have also been on the Internet for a number of years, it’s safe to say that Internet Explorer is probably one of the most familiar applications available today. Or perhaps I should say that the basics of Internet Explorer are familiar to most people. However, as with any complex program, there are hidden pockets of the browser that most people don’t know about. Significantly, many of these seldom-seen areas are not as obscure as you might think. You can put many of these features to good use immediately to make your web surfing easier, more efficient, and more productive. In this chapter, I take you on a tour of a few of my favorite Internet Explorer nooks and crannies and I show you how they can improve your web experience. You also learn about several of the new features that come with Internet Explorer 7, the latest version of Microsoft’s Web browser, which comes with all versions of Windows Vista.
