Internet Explorer 8

Internet Explorer 8 is the latest version of a worldwide known web browser. Released by the Microsoft Corporation, now it adds and improves features to provide safer browsing and higher speed.

You will enjoy the new accelerators, which will make web browsing much easier. You can simply select text from any web page and then click on the Blue accelerator icon that appears above, that way acceleration options will show up for you. These options let you add a blog entry, directly search in Google, directly e-mail from windows live and even translate the selected text with Bing. This innovative feature is pretty outstanding.

Internet Explorer 8 allows you to navigate the web without saving your browsing history, all thanks to the InPrivate feature, which has the ability of letting users browse with confidence and without leaving traces behind. This feature assures that nobody will find out about the web sites you have visited or the online places you have accessed.

Now you will enjoy smarter searches with detailed suggestions that come from your favourite search providers and browsing history. In fact, the enhanced instant search box can display suggested visual previews and topics from related contents.

That´s not it, Internet Explorer 8 brings the outstanding Web Slices, which will keep you informed about all changes made on web sites that are frequently updated, directly from the favorites bar. If a web page offers a Web Slice then a green Web Slices icon will show up on the browser´s right top corner.

Internet Explorer 8 has also worried about your security and now brings the SmartScreen filter feature. It prevents you from accessing fraudulent and malicious web sites that can compromise your data. It also protects you from online scams.
