English Dictionary: Internet Explorer by the DICT Development Group
2 results for Internet Explorer
From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]:
Internet Explorer
n
  1. a commercial browser [syn: Internet Explorer, Explorer, IE]
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   Internet Explorer
  
      (IE, MSIE) {Microsoft}'s free {World-Wide
      Web} {browser} for {Microsoft Windows}, {Windows 95}, {Windows
      NT}, and {Macintosh}.   Internet Explorer is the main rival to
      {Netscape Navigator} (which runs on many more {platforms}).
      Both support the same core features and offer incompatible
      extensions.
  
      Microsoft combined later versions of IE with their {file
      system} browser, "Explorer" and bundled it with {Windows 95}
      in an attempt to use their dominance of the {desktop}
      {operating system} market to force users to abandon Netscape's
      browser, which they perceived as a potential threat.   This,
      and other dubious business moves, became the subject of a US
      Department of Justice antitrust trial in late 1998/early 1999.
  
      {Home (http://www.microsoft.com/ie/)}.
