Web browser war had been intensified with the new emerging web browsers and current developments in existing internet browsers. Internet explorer has been the most used internet web browser and still is because Microsoft released ie8 and ie9 with major changes. Microsoft is a software company and who knows best about internet explorer more than Windows creators? Microsoft beats other competitors because of Windows OS that includes ever developing web explorer. That offers a lot of competition for Mozilla and even Google web browser. Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome are the best web browsers out there. They offer innovative approach to browser the web and build flexible platform for web browser that enhances web browser so that user can modify it according to his need. One can install add-ons, themes, skins and lot more. Now browsers remember history and opened web pages if they crash. They offer user maximum control over browsing and privacy while using internet. Security, privacy and flexibility enabled Mozilla Firefox to become the most favorite web browser among tech junkies. Now every body recommends to use Firefox. Firefox is like a fashion. Google Chrome is like a fashion. Like a new trend. They are serious competitors of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. Lets compare the popular web browsers in detail.
Does your Internet Explorer 8 or IE9 starts slow? You can fix slow startup of Internet Explorer. First we will have to find the cause of slow internet explorer startup. Possible cuases can be:
- Add-ons installed in IE.
- Toolbars installed in IE.
- Security software installed.
When we install different software, they install their toolbar for internet explorer. Many software even Yahoo Messenger will install Yahoo Toolbar in IE. If a messenger can install toolbar then imagine how many software out there would be glad to stick their toolbar into your IE. Being in hurry we usually don’t notice and keep clicking next button without customizing installation. IE has Add-ons support but many add-ons can also cause in slow IE performance. Security software (e.g. Spybot Search and Destroy and other AntiViruses) can also interfere IE startup by checking different services. So what is the solution?
Bad news for web developers…. Internet Explorer 9 is here. Congrats! Internet Explorer 9 requires Windows Vista or Windows 7. You can preview and test the latest features of Internet Explorer 9. Internet browsers are experiencing a cut-throat competition right now. The one which will not be able to keep up, will be perished. Internet browsers must update because HTML5 and CSS3 are changing the web all over again. These web pages will never be same with HTML5 and CSS3. Here comes the challenge for internet browsers now. So Microsoft has also launched Internet Explorer 9 which hugely supports HTML5, CSS3 and much more dynamic elements essential for web today.
Internet Explorer is the most widely used internet browser even today when Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera are catching up fast. The reason behind this suggests that the ordinary internet user is stupid. They are happy with the internet explorer which comes with the Windows and do not bother to download another browser. I being a developer have to use all browsers which are out there. If you are not one of those stupids, and you have installed other browsers as well or prefer FireFox or Opera and your PC is also used by other people (friends/family) and you want that nobody would use internet explorer then you can password protect the Internet Explorer.
This is an irritating problem while closing IE6 or IE7 which gives a message like.
‘The exception unknown software exception (0x0eedfade) occurred in the application at location 0x7c81eb33.’
The problem is something to do with a conflict between the IE and some programs.
