The incredible software used for downloading Google Chrome.

There are many misconceptions that internet explorer is actually a web browser, but it's not.
Internet explorer is the best software for downloading Google Chrome.

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.

Software eclusivly developed for the purpose of pulling the internet backwards in time to the stone age,

While at the same time filling int with more security holes then a swiz cheese.

Oh and its only absolute transparency not alpha value!

Hmmm... maybe in another 5-7 years...

The only Web browser in the world that is so bad that it is only used to download other Web browsers, such as: Mozilla Firefox, Opera or Safari.
Yes, Finally after an hour, my Firefox download is finished, now I never have to use Internet Explorer again!

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.
