Visit regular websites or ones that still require ActiveX support in a multi-tabbed interface. Keep a history of your visited websites, create bookmarks and enjoy the backward compatibility. It supports media codecs, WebM, WebGL, and HTML5.

The last in a line of browsers that have accompanied Windows OS since its inclusion as the default browser in 1995, Internet Explorer 11 is also the precursor of Microsoft Edge, the new Microsoft Web navigation tool for both Windows Phone and Windows 10. With the stress put on security and a faster browsing experience, IE11 mixes backward compatibility with the support for the latest Web standards - such as HTML5, WebM, WebGL, etc. - and media codecs.

If you upgraded your PC to Windows 10, you’ll notice that the default Microsoft browser is no longer Internet Explorer, but Microsoft Edge, which started as the default navigation tool for the new Windows Phone OS and that has now taken over – in a totally logical move – as the default browser for all devices running on Windows 10. Actually, IE is still there on your computer, though you will have to look for it if you still want to use it. Internet Explorer 11 is the last of its kind and is already minimally supported by Microsoft. Thus, IE 11 could be considered as a kind of “transition browser” between IE and Edge, a goodbye to the browser that nearly everyone used at the turn of the century and an attempt to recover part of the popularity lost first to Firefox and then to Chrome during the last 15 years. more

Microsoft edge is the worst thing I have ever used, not fast, not smooth, even bad pictures when I open the app.
