The Web’s Most Popular Browser Internet Explorer on Windows
Internet Explorer on Windows is the name of the new version of Microsoft’s immensely popular web browser. Microsoft has big hopes for a version, building on the success of earlier editions of IE with new features and a fresh style. The new interface in Internet Explorer is the first thing you’ll notice. IE appears sleeker, smarter, and simpler than ever before, thanks to the transparent graphical style featured in Windows and subsequent editions of Windows Vista. The Address bar and Search box have been integrated, similar to Google Chrome, to promote a more fluid user experience.
Improved connection with the Windows operating system and a significantly enhanced security system are among the new features introduced in Internet Explorer. In addition, Internet Explorer allows you to ‘pin’ webpages to the Superbar and bookmark your favorite websites as ‘applications’ in your operating system. The new Performance Advisor add-on determines which add-ons are slowing down Internet Explorer (a feature badly needed in Mozilla Firefox).
We provide a path to the web’s future while also preserving the web’s past with Microsoft Edge. We needed to change, but we didn’t want to abandon stable, still-working websites and applications. We’re here to assist you to make the switch to Microsoft Edge’s more comprehensive browsing experience and to explain why we think it will meet your needs at home and at work.
You gain a dual-engine advantage with Microsoft Edge, which supports both legacy and new websites. For websites and applications that still require Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer mode provides built-in legacy browser support. In actuality, Microsoft Edge is the only browser with built-in compatibility for legacy Internet Explorer webpages and apps, including ActiveX controls. Microsoft Edge is also based on the Chromium project, which drives many of today’s browsers, thus it provides top-notch compatibility for modern websites. You get the best of the web, both past, and future, with the dual engine advantage.
It can be aggravating to have to use various browsers for different jobs. Although you may prefer to use a newer browser, a public website or internal work program may require Internet Explorer. This is where the Microsoft Edge browser comes in. Your productivity will be streamlined thanks to its dual-engine advantage. You can now use Microsoft Edge instead of “this browser for this site” and “that browser for that site.”
Microsoft Edge also includes innovative, cutting-edge capabilities that aren’t available in Internet Explorer. Do you have a lot of tabs open on your computer? To free up resources, use sleeping pills. Are the similar tabs along the top of your browser tough to read? Move them to the side and use Vertical tabs to make them easier to read. Wouldn’t it be nice if your Favorites were more than simply links? With Collections, gathering and organizing information from all over the web is a breeze. Do you enjoy switching between work and personal browsers? Instead, try creating multiple profiles in Microsoft Edge and using it exclusively.
Better Browser Security
Every second, about 579 password attacks are attempted; you’ll need a browser that can handle this. With Microsoft Defender SmartScreen, Microsoft Edge provides the best protection against phishing attempts and malware on Windows. It also has a feature called Password Monitor, which analyzes the dark web for signs that your personal information has been hijacked. Microsoft Edge is even better for businesses than Chrome on Windows 10, thanks to integrations with the Microsoft 365 Security suite: Microsoft Edge is more secure than Chrome for businesses on Windows.
In today’s changing security world, it’s also critical that Microsoft Edge responds more quickly to security flaws. Microsoft Edge can deliver security patches for imminent vulnerabilities within days, if not hours, as opposed to monthly for Internet Explorer. If you’ve been using Internet Explorer for years, Microsoft Edge can now be your go-to online browser thanks to increased compatibility, faster productivity, and improved browser security.
If your company uses Internet Explorer, you may have a surprising number of legacy Internet Explorer-based websites and apps that have accumulated over time. In fact, we discovered that on average, businesses have 1,678 legacy apps. 1 By migrating to Microsoft Edge, you’ll get all of the above benefits, as well as the opportunity to employ IE mode to extend the life of your legacy websites and apps much beyond the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application retirement date. Microsoft Edge’s Internet Explorer mode will be available until at least 2029. To start setting up Microsoft Edge with Internet Explorer mode in time for 2022, we recommend taking the following three steps:
- For further information, go to the Internet Explorer mode webpage. With a Forrester Consulting Total Economic ImpactTM assessment tool and access to the Getting Started guide, you can get a tailored cost-benefit analysis of Microsoft Edge and IE mode for your firm.
- Read the Getting Started guide for helpful checklists, instructional videos, and access to free resources like FastTrack and App Assure, which can assist you with deployment and website and app compatibility.
- You can use an Enterprise Mode Site List from Internet Explorer if you already have one. If you’re reusing your Enterprise Mode Site List, you’re almost halfway through configuring Internet Explorer mode. If you don’t already have one, use the Configure IE mode tool to make one.
