One who explores the internet. In times of yore the internet was small and self contained, with everyone knowing exactly where they wanted to go. As the internet expanded, internet explorers began to travel from site to site, following directions or 'hyperlinks' from native guides. Early explorations were limited by the shear difficulty of finding anything. Today the task of not being able to find anything is largely performed using asearch engine, and like many traditional crafts the role of Internet Explorer is slowly dieing out.
Internet explorers were not the most efficient way of travelling the internet, but in many cases were the only option available.

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 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!

The dumbest browser on Planet Earth that only n00bs use. It has amazing features like free viruses, automatic spyware downloads, and big security holes.
