The best web browser around, maybe even ever. Comes pre-installed with Windows, and has awesome features built into it, such as a popup blocker, private browsing, and link scanning. Definitely the top of the line in terms of technology, compared to its rivals.

Competitors include Firefox, Opera, and Google Chrome, but they all take up way too much memory, and have a bunch of useless "add-ons" that you have to install just to do basic stuff such as block popups. These addons frequently cause browser crashes, and become outdated whenever the browser updates. IE8 comes with all of these features from the start, and the addons it has never cause problems. Internet Explorer can also view 99% of all websites with no problem, while these other guys are incompatible with half of the websites out there.

Some douches out there will dis Internet Explorer, but usually these guys are just butthurt Mac fans who are jealous of Microsoft's popularity - so don't listen to them, Internet Explorer is the best.
Retarded Firefox user: "Internet Explorer sucks compared to Firefox - Firefox has this cool addon that lets me watch gay porn while listening to Boy George music in the same window... (addon crashes) ... AAAGGHHHH!!!

Smart IE8 user: Wow, grow a brain idiot. Don't be jealous just 'cause you got suckered into buying a Mac and got stuck with Firefux as your default browser. Internet Explorer kicks ass.

The best browser for downloading a better browser. Just fire it up, and download one of the many great web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Opera. Anyone who actually willingly uses IE is either too technologically impaired to realize that there are better browsers out there, or they are just plain stupid.
Awesome I just got my new laptop! Sweet it came with Internet Explorer 9! Now I can download Chrome even faster! Thanks Microsoft!

Internet Explorer is an insidious web browser that comes installed on Microsoft operating systems. It crashes all the time and then annoys you with prompts asking if you want to send error reports. It also has a lot of security vulnerabilities, and using it is the easiest way to get a virus, trojan, or other malware.

As if that weren't bad enough, Internet Explorer is so integrated into the system that removing it can cause major problems.
The only thing Internet Explorer is good for is downloading Firefox

The dumbest browser on Planet Earth that only n00bs use. It has amazing features like free viruses, automatic spyware downloads, and big security holes.
1. What browser do you use?
2. Internet Explorer

The Most Common Browser,but Most used is Mozilla Firefox.

It's more Evil than Firefox,a Virus Bait,and is more Slow than Mozilla Firefox,There is No Bright Side in this crappy Machine. Always Obsolete. ALWAYS.

see shit
Internet Explorer is da shit for downloading FF, Opera or Safari!

A browser that comes standard with Windows. It was once one of the best, but has since become outdated and susceptible to Spyware and viruses. The worst thing about it is that it can't really be removed from Windows, especially since some sites only work with IE.
I started Internet Explorer and started cursing at the flood of pop-ups.
