Well, each one of us wants the best of the rest, and when it comes to choosing browser for ourselves, we wouldn’t want to make any compromise.Internet Explorer, the Microsoft browser unfortunately lost its ground and failed to win the hearts of the users when launched first, but then that doesn’t mean the improved versions launched would too fail to impress us all.

Many tech savvy people ditched Internet Explorer for other best options readily available, but when Internet Explorer 9 was introduced, many people loved its cool features and welcomed it. It was after several months of beta testing, the IE 9 was introduced on Windows 7 and Vista.
