This course module covers web browsing and searching using IE and greater. Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) has become the overwhelming standard for browsing web pages online with 55% usage. All Windows-based computers come pre-installed with Internet Explorer, and versions appear on other platforms. This prevalence (along with speed, stability, and ease of use) is what has led to IE being the preferred web browser for both creators and users of the World Wide Web (WWW). However, there are other good alternative browsers out there too that you can equally use to surf the web, e.g., Apple’s Safari (~7%), Mozilla Firefox (~23%), Opera (~3%), Google Chrome (~1%) and many more.
