Internet Explorer Finally Released

on Friday, March 20, 2009

On Thursday, Microsoft Corp. launched the latest version of its Internet Explorer browser, heavy on privacy features. That is better than previous version, Internet Explorer 7. These browsers are better, safer, easier, and faster than previous version.

The latest version, Internet Explorer 8 can be downloaded freely from Microsoft's Web site in 25 languages. The final release version of the browser has been available on a test basis since last summer. Microsoft has introduced changes which allow users greater control over whether to save or erase their browsing history, via "cookies", small packets of text which can be used to track browsing history.

Features of internet explorer 8 are:

<-> Accelerators

Simply highlight text from any web page, and then click on the blue Accelerator icon that appears above your selection to obtain driving directions, translate and define words, email content to others, search with ease, and more. For example, with the "Map with Live Maps" Accelerator in Internet Explorer 8, you can get an in-place view of a map displayed directly on the page.

This feature allows users to highlight text on a Web site and choose from a variety of functions, including search engines, language translation or map displays.

<-> InPrivate Browsing

InPrivate Browsing in Internet Explorer 8 helps prevent your browsing history, temporary Internet files, form data, cookies, and usernames and passwords from being retained by the browser, leaving no evidence of your browsing or search history.

You can start InPrivate Browsing by opening a new tab and selecting Browse with InPrivate or selecting it from the Safety button on the top right corner of the browser window. Once you complete this action, Internet Explorer 8 will launch a new browser session that won't record any information, including searches or webpage visits. To end your InPrivate Browsing session, simply close the browser window.

<-> Enhanced delete browsing history

Now when deleting browsing history, you can choose to preserve cookies and temporary Internet files for sites in your Favorites folder. This helps to protect your information and privacy while preserving your data on your trusted favorite sites. Your preferences and cookies are preserved, helping you to get to your trusted sites faster with greater confidence.

<-> Web Slices

You can keep up with frequently updated sites directly from the new Favorites Bar. If a Web Slice is available on a page, a green Web Slices icon will appear in the upper-right hand corner of the browser. Click on this icon to easily subscribe and add the Web Slices to the Favorites Bar so you can keep track of that "slice" of the web. When new information becomes available, the Web Slice will become highlighted. When you click on the Web Slice in the Favorites Bar, it previews relevant information. Clicking on the preview takes you directly to the site for more information.

<-> Search suggestions

The new search capabilities in Internet Explorer 8 will offer relevant suggestions as you type words into the search box to help save time. Click on a suggestion at any time to immediately execute the search without having to type the entire word or phrase.

Internet Explorer 8 is partnering with top search providers like Live Search, Wikipedia, Yahoo, Amazon, and more to deliver "visual search" images that provide you with immediate answers. If typing "Seattle weather" or other search term, with Live Search will instantly show you a preview of the current weather directly in the Search Box drop-down.

An integrated "Find On Page" button also has been added to the instant search box, enabling you to search for text on the current webpage. Also, you can change the width of the Instant Search Box by dragging its left edge, making it easier to see long search strings as they are typed.
You can easily delete, disable, or enable Search Providers by clicking on Manage Search Providers from the drop-down arrow in the Search box or Manage Add-ons from the Tools button on the upper right-hand corner of the browser window.

<-> SmartScreen Filter

Internet Explorer 8 helps protect you against inadvertent installation of malware, or malicious software which can compromise your data, privacy, and identity while also damaging your computer and valuable data, with the new SmartScreen Filter. You can enable or disable it at any time, but recommended to enable it.

<-> Cross Site Scripting (XSS) Filter

Internet Explorer 8 introduces the capability to detect malicious code running on compromised websites, helping to protect you from exploits which can lead to information disclosure, cookie stealing, account/identity theft, and more. These attacks have emerged as a leading online threat so we've included the new Cross Site Scripting Filter to help you stay safer online.

<-> Domain Highlighting

Domain Highlighting lets you more easily interpret web addresses to help you avoid deceptive and phishing sites that attempt to trick you with misleading addresses. It does this by highlighting the domain name in the address bar in black, with the remainder of the URL string in gray, making for easier identification of the sites true identity.

<-> Data Execution Detection (DEP)

Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is a security feature that can help prevent damage to your computer from viruses and other security threats by preventing certain types of code from writing to executable memory space.
