Quick Tips for Internet Explorer

Do you surf the Internet? Do you use Internet Explorer? According to the statistics, the odds are pretty good that you will answer “yes” and “yes”. Because of those facts, I have written many articles IE_logocontaining advice and tips for getting the most out of Internet Explorer, and how to troubleshoot ‘glitches’ when they occur.

I have listed links to my more popular tips, and I invite you to scan the topic titles, and see if any catch your eye.

    • Mr. Mullins,
      You are very kind, sir, and I thank you. I hope that people will find the information useful.

      Speaking of “information” and “useful”, your website Tech Thoughts is certainly a champion in that regard! I hope you will keep writing for a very long while to come.

        • g,
          It might surprise you how many folks are unfamiliar with “tabbed browsing”, and the default was “Open in a new window” (I think that was fixed in IE 8).

          Granted… tabs have been around for years, and people should know…

  3. Internet Explorer still exists? It is just amazing how long crapware can continue to be used. Oh well.

    But in all seriousness, thanks for putting together the list. As much as I despise IE, especially since I am a web developer, they have made a lot of progress. Guess the swift kick in the arse they got from Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Opera finally sunk in.

    • Pjerky,
      I am going to take your comment as an opportunity to once again remind my readers that my personal daily browser is the latest Firefox, and that I have the Add-ons NoScript, Flashblock, and AdBlock Plus.
      I also use Sandboxie.

      I absolutely despair when I see the percentage of people still browsing with IE 6…

      Thank you for your comment.
