Here are some of the ways that Internet Explorer makes browsing the web easier, safer, and more enjoyable.
New security and privacy features allow you to browse the web more safely.
Microsoft SmartScreen Filter can help protect you from phishing attacks, online fraud, and spoofed websites, as well as websites that distribute malicious software. For more information, see SmartScreen Filter: frequently asked questions.
InPrivate Browsing enables you to surf the web without leaving a trail in Internet Explorer. This helps prevent anyone else who might be using your computer from seeing where you visited and what you looked at on the web. For more information, see What is InPrivate Browsing?
InPrivate Filtering helps you prevent websites from sharing your browsing habits. For more information, see InPrivate: frequently asked questions.
Higher security levels can help protect you from hackers and web attacks. The Internet Explorer Cross-site Scripting (XSS) Filter can help prevent malicious websites from stealing your personal information when you visit trusted sites.
