Microsoft's internet browser included with Windows systems. Faster at loading up than other browsers like Firefox and Netscape which take fucking ages. As an internet browser, it works and does its job.

Can be insecure with its default settings, but tieing them down virtually eliminates some, if not all of the security problems that people complain about. Unfortunately the reputation for spyware comes from dumb users who download shite like smiley central or are dumb enough to "YES" or "OK" to everything that pops up on screen.

Bashed by geeky open source zealots and Mozilla anoraks frequently who often over-exaggerate the truth in order to push their alternative.
IE is safe if you tie down its default security settings. I have NEVER had any malicious programs install automatically.

A simple Windows XP tool which allows the user to browse to Mozilla.com and download Firefox, a web browser.
As soon as I installed XP I opened Internet Explorer and grabbed the latest version of Firefox.

One of the most amazing tools for downloading Firefox
I used Internet Explorer to download Firefox. One of the only uses of this crappy browser.

Microsoft's pre-installed, default internet browser for Windows. Has to be the worst browser on earth, because its only features are free viruses, automatic spyware downloads, and awesome security holes.

The best part about Internet Explorer is that it forced companies, such as Mozilla and Opera, to make their own browsers, which completely and utterly blow Internet Explorer out of the water.

Download Opera/Mozilla plz.
"Internet Explorer installed spyware on my machine again :\."

1) The greatest browser in the world. No other browser can download Mozilla FireFox like Internet Explorer.
1) As soon as I turned on my brand new Alienware PC, I fired up Internet Explorer so I could download Mozilla FireFox.

The crappiest browser on earth. Comes complete with security holes, shitty standards support, and no features. A favorite of ignorant internet users everywhere.

Get Mozilla.
Internet Explorer is a steaming mound of poo.

A browser that while popular, has many security holes. It also has poor support of today's standards, and has a dangerous feature called ActiveX that can be used to install programs harmful to computers.
Still using Internet Explorer? I suggest switching to a Mozilla-based browser, Opera, or another alternate browser.

Microsoft's attempt to dominate the Internet by integrating this poor excuse of a browser with every Windows OS, although this was deemed illegal, they made some bullshit up about it being a core part of Windows. So in the end, they integrated this POS into Windows.

IE is buggy, has many security holes, is slow, supports ActiveX so websites can install their XXX dialers on our systems, and finally, it's not standards compliant, so 80%+ web pages have sloppy HTML which doesn't work with standards compliant browsers, only IE. How convenient.
Internet Explorer is the most COMMON browser, but NOT the most popular.
