Internet Explorer 5.0 is Microsoft’s proprietary freeware solution to browsing internet web pages in Windows, Mac and UNIX systems. One of its new features is allowing users to save pages not only in HTML format, but also in MHTML format, which are editable with Microsoft Word text editor.
With this version of Internet Explorer, users can work with pages faster thanks to its improved performance. Common tasks have been automated and the 'AutoComplete addresses and web forms' feature has been implemented in this version.
Internet Explorer is the world’s most commonly used web browser because it is a user friendly tool that allows users to work with text, images, videos, etc. in a fun, easy and quick way. It provides tools like saving and organizing favorite pages, keeping a history of the recently visited pages, and saving pages contents so that they can be viewed offline. Its customizable menu bars let perform such actions as printing web pages, searching, using hyperlink access to desired web pages, sending e-mails, etc. Other tools available in Internet Explorer include text finder, text magnifier, full page display, and so forth.
This is a great tool with many benefits for Internet users or users who need to view information from Web Servers within local networks.


  • Easy to use.
  • Easy access to tools.
  • Improved performance.


  • Vulnerable to Internet threats, like virus.

    Funny! I didn't get a food verification show up on IE while on Opera I had to select 3 things that looked like food and the words *verify* would not appear unless I keep hitting a key. Commenting is so much smoother.

    Wow! I am now trying this site on IE which my last comment was on Opera and it appears a whole lot cleaner, whereas on Opera it looks like for smartphones with really tiny sections. Reading comments are a lot easier on the eyes instead of all that nothingness around the comment boxes.
    The latest IE is very good, and stable either, that or maybe browsers have personalities and know who is using them so react to each user differently.
    Let's see how the comment publishes on IE!
